A wheel barrow and Sitting Tilda With Butterfly.

Good afternoon, crafty bloggers.
Today I have made a wheel barrow and gorgeous Sitting Tilda With Butterfly from the
Once Upon A Time Collection.

 Sitting Tilda With Butterfly has been coloured with Polychromos pencils and I have added
 Glamour Dust to the butterfly's wings.
I have made the wheel barrow with 240gsm white card.
You can find the fab template HERE
I have distressed around the wheels and barrow with Tim Holtz Tea Dye distress ink.
 The inner wheels and handles have been coloured with a pink Promarker.
The large glitter Papermania brads in the centre of the wheels are  by Docrafts. 
 The papers that I have used are Maja Designs "Vintage Spring."
The pretty daisy lace around the top of the barrow is from the The Ribbon Girl.
I cut a piece of cheese cloth and rubbed it all over with Tea Dye distress ink then I sprayed it with water and left it to dry before arranging it inside the barrow. I inked a butterfly from the Magnolia butterfly kit with Spun Sugar distress ink, added a white 3mm pearl to each wing and glued it onto the cheese cloth inside the barrow.
 The sweet little apples on top of the cheese cloth are from Live & Love Crafts.
I have tied a pink bow using 25mm satin ribbon from Fantastic Ribbons and added a pink polka dot button from The Ribbon Girl to the centre with a tied piece of satin edged ribbon through the centre.
From the side you can see another butterfly.
