Autumn Tri-Shutter - Autumn is the challenge at Craft Your Days Away this fortnight. We are sponsored by Heartsong Designs. I used their Thistle image to make this tri-shutter card. I colored the thistle with Copics and put some Stickles on the butterfly. I used a Spell binders to cut the image and lots of red brick and Walnut stain distress inks.

My DP's are from a pack that I picked up at Big Lots. They repackage them, so I don't know the maker.

I used a variety of flowers. The dark blue ones I made using my Cricut and the wet and ball method. The red one was a silk flower with I added a gemstone brad with. The small orange flowers are by Making Memories, as is the clear leaves. I wrapped a blue wire around a small paint brush and the blue pearl spray was airbrushed with Copic's.
I used 4 gemstone butterflies for the small folds. The butterflies are a MS punch and then Dew Drops were added to them.
I used a couple of charms to dangle from the top fold. I also used a Maya Road chipboard key that I sprayed with Maya Roads Mist. I added some of my Favorite gemstones to the key.
