I really love how this came out!
I stamped and heat embossed the butterflies in black onto vellum, then I used the coordinating dies to die cut them out!
then I used some paper that I had watercolored in rainbow to die cut out the butterflies too (no stamping on the watercolor!)
next, I sewed those 2 layers together!! LOVE that dimension!

I also used the Butterflies Stencil Set on my background! I used the bottom stencil with some white embossing paste over the black gesso on my layout!
then I used the top layer of the stencil with some DecoFoil Transfer Duo Gel and Black Flock! I LOOOOVE the dimension and texture that adds! The transfer duo gel lets you add foil or flock to your image without heat!! just pressure! perfect for layouts!

I splattered black and white all over the layout, too! it's a very messy, mixed media-y layout! lol!
lastly, I stamped some of the phrases onto strips of white cardstock, and attached them to my photo!

I used a bunch of my supplies minimally to accent: some wood veneers and old Thickers for the title! 
it's the perfect layout to capture this (rare) moment of my little Menn showing each other love (and no wrestling!! ha!)
