Welcome to our first Encore Week, one of the new additions to the blog this year.
At the end of each month, we'll be sharing new ideas and techniques using older images from our collection. We hope to inspire you to do the same with items you may have in your stash. To get us started, we're revisiting one of my old favourites - Candy Shoppe.
Judy VanZandt has created three fabulous pocket cards, decorated with hand-coloured images from the Candy Shoppe set, and finished with embellished tags. These little creations are perfect for holding money, vouchers or gift cards and will fit nicely in an envelope for posting.
Judy has coloured each of the images from the Candy Shoppe set, fussy cut around them with a pair of small, sharp scissors, and then popped them up with some foam tape for a bit of extra dimension. Using this technique creates actual shadows between the image and the background, which helps to ground the picture on the project.
Judy has kindly shared a colouring guide for those who wish to recreate her project.
