DT Sketch Take - Take 1 ;)

Hi, everyone! It's been quite the busy season of birthdays at my house. My hubby's birthday was 3/21 followed by my oldest son's on 3/30 and my youngest son turns 6 tomorrow, but his party was yesterday. Today was spent taking my daughter to gymnastics, lunch with my mom and trying to find the birthday boy a bike (with no luck). Needless to say this post is going up later than I intended. I hope everyone had a fabulous weekend! We posted a sketch on Saturday and asked the Design Team do to their take on it for their first DT project. Here are the first two. The others will be showcased tomorrow and Wednesday so stay tuned for those!  *Vanessa*

Hi! Lisa here with my take on today's sketch. I have used a ton of various Dear Lizzy pieces on my layout.  The Dear Lizzy Collections are so fun to mix and match.  This also gives you more options and schemes to work with on any given project.  A fun little tip about my side strips... they are really the top parts of the paper that are torn off.  Instead of throwing them out I pieced them together and turned them into strips!  Enjoy!

In true Sam style, I veered ever so slightly from the sketch... am I the only one who does that? ha ha! :D

I sort of flipped the card sketch upside down and went with it! The rainbow was colored with some Copics and then popped up for dimension! I also popped up the clouds separate from the rainbow for even more glorious dimension! 

I painted with a very light coat of gesso over part of my vellum speech bubble and then glued on the sentiment wood veneers with glossy accents! The black and white patterned paper panel was popped up as well (did I mention I like dimension?!) and the grey diagonal stripes is a strip of washi tape! Finish it off with a few splatterings of perfect pearls and some sequins (courtesy of my little menn's easter egg decorating kit...cough cough...) and it's complete!

I used lots of goodies from the store! Paper Smooches Spectrum stamp set, gold Perfect Pearls, Echo Park Here & Now 6x6 paper pad, and Darling Dear wood veneers alphabet!
