Default TLC101 - Shadow Box Cards

Many thanks go to Dawn Mercedes for this suggestion a few months ago and for the link to Dawn5377's awesome tutorial!

Here are some wonderful cards by Dawn Mercedes:
City of David
Fall Leaves

You can find Dawn5377's tutorial here.

ETA: Dawn and Dawn, thank you both for your contributions to SCS and thank you for being so gracious in the light of my confusion of your names and creations. My apologies! and that should teach me *not* to put together a TLC in a hurry after a long, crazy weekend! LOL


I look forward to seeing all your creations!
As always, I am in search of suggestions for techniques for future TLCs! Please PM with suggestions and a link to the directions and/or a sample if you can. Thanks!


If you have questions, please ask. If you have suggestions, please share!


If you need help uploading or have a question about a challenge, click on this link for helpful information.

Yeah!

But...the tutorial is a different Dawn...
Dawn5377 on SCS!

(I did promote it though. And the cards are my samples. I bet you didn't know how creative women named Dawn really are!)

This should be fun!

Looks so interesting but will have to wait to play until after work, dinner, homework, kids in bed! Then it's MY TIME, my THERAPY time with stamps and ink! Thanks for the challenge!

My mother likes to set her cards on her kitchen window sill so I thought this shadow box card would work well for Easter!
