You Hum it and I'll Play it

I'm blogging on the Quirky Blog today and my card uses one of the latest set of
Crafty Templates.  As soon as I saw this one I knew it would make a beautiful silhouette placed on a sunset background.

As well as using the beautiful template, I used a few bits from my Quirky Kit, including the gorgeous  Kesi-art colour mist you'll find in the main 'Candy Floss Cart' kit - its the lovely aqua shade on the inky layers of my card. 

Clicking HERE will take you to a fab post Leo made recently on how to the best from this product :)

I used:
From Crafty Templates; Hummingbird and Flower
From the Quirky Kit;  Kesi-art colour mist, Feather stickers (matted first onto card and cut out), Tiny Star sequins, Round Sequins*
From my stash; Black card, White card, Clear Dewdrops, Distress Inks

* I glued a couple of clear dewdrop "stones" on top of the coloured sequins as an experiment, I'm really happy at how it worked and the way the colour of the sequins shows through the clear plastic

 This is such a lovely template - probably my favourite from this set, but there's another bird template too and I can't make up my mind whether to use that or the gorgeous bows one for my next project :)
Anyway, that's all for now -I  hope you like this card and that you'll head over and investigate the lovely Quriky Blog with all its card and scrapbook inspiration

Thanks for looking
