Totally Tilda DT #74 Inspired by a Song - NOT Happy Birthday!!

Hello my dears,  I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend,  I was at my monthly crop yesterday in East Kilbride and as always we had such a fun time, with not a lot of work being done but loads and loads of laughter and fun.  

Our challenge over at  Totally Tilda this fortnight is a bitter sweet one for me as all of the regular DT have come to the end of an amazing year as Designers for the lovely Susie and this will be our last post.  

Anyhoo!! before I get maudlin I will tell you the theme for our challenge and it is to be 

"Inspired by a song"  but Not Happy Birthday!!!!  you don't get away with a challenge that easy!! lol.

This was an easy one for me as having retired just over 2 years ago from a 35 years career as a professional singer/musician I knew exactly what song I wanted to portray and it is

 Dolly Parton  "Love is like a Butterfly" 

As you can see I've used sitting Tilda with Butterfly from the Once Upon a Time Collection 2013 and she has been coloured with Flex Markers and Derwent pencils, 

I've used a Marianne Design Petra large oval and used Fran-tage shabby white on it.

My air dry clay butterfly has also been fran-tages and distressed using TH brushed corduroy distress ink

A full list of ingredients and links can be found at the bottom of my post.
