Tamara here with you. Today I have a CAS card for you. I really like colouring up these Mochi girls, they are big enough so I don’t have to struggle with the tiniest details and still they are perfect size for a card. She’s called Journaling Mochi Girl.
I saw a similar card design on Instagram and wanted to use the layout for this image. I had a few sentiments prepared for the card but then I chose this one … YOU CAN! It’s a powerful message and since I’m doing an additional year of collage this year and I’m super stressed all the time, I feel like this girl and all I can say to myself is You can!
Image was stamped with Archival Ink – Jet black on 300g HP Fabriano watercolour paper and then coloured up with Distress Ink pads.
Distress Ink pads colours used are:
skin: vintage photo
cheeks: worn lipstick
hair: fossilized amber, spiced marmalade, rusty hinge
shirt: dusty concord, black soot
mug: victorian velvet, black soot
notebook: pumice stone, black soot
I added some white lines and some glitter to the image.
