Together - new challenge from Stuck? sketches

Check out the new mid-month challenge which has just gone live at 'Stuck' Sketches. Another great multi-photo sketch. Here is my take on it for the Stuck DT.
Instead of using two equal sized photos I modified the sketch to include a main 6x4 photo and a smaller 3x3 supporting photo. I took both photos a couple of weekends ago at a beach picnic that we shared with my son Jaime and his beautiful girlfriend, Cindy. I especially love the sneaky little photo that I took from behind as we were walking back to the car - love how they are so casually holding hands and chatting together.
My papers and embellishments are mainly Studio Calico. Can you see my stitched circle stamps? I am really loving these!

To get the script effect on the butterfly I simply painted it with yellow acrylic paint. When the paint was dry I used a grey gelato pen to 'ink' my type-stamp and then stamped directly onto the butterfly. I inked the edges with black ink to get a shadow effect.

My title 'together' is another 2Crafty loopy word. I coloured it pale blue using a gelato pen and inked the edges again.
I hope that you have time to join in with our challenge this month. There are some great prizes up for grabs including  ScrapMatts chipboard and Let's Capture our Memories who are offering a $20 store voucher.
