(Please click on the photo for clearer resolution). I just adore Jenny's little owls, they are SO CUTE! And apparently her bats (and spiders, though I didn't use any here) are too! I punched an oval of this pre-glittered black paper from last year's Martha Stewart Halloween papers collection, stamped the owl, fence and hat separately, colored them in using Copic markers, cut them out and assembled them. Then I took a piece of this gorgeous black velvet paper from the same set and used Martha Stewart's Crackle punch along the top edge and tied some of this pretty iridescent yellow ribbon from Hobby Lobby around it. Both of the cutie pie bats were stamped, colored and cut out too. The sliver moon was stamped on yellow cardstock and then I added some glitter glue over the top to make it sparkle and let it dry (FYI: I found some of this Studio G glitter glue in these adorable little bottles that resembled Stickles at Walmart for only 97 cents (though I have seen them at Michaels for $1 as well) and wanted to see how they compared to Stickles - well, they ROCK IMHO! Extremely similar to Stickles - look just as sparkly when dry, and dries in about the same amount of time too. They might have been just a microscopic tad thicker than Stickles, though that isn't bad as I found it easier to control that way, and the opening of the dispenser might be slightly larger but with practice it is just as easy to get a nice fine line.) I added some buttons with yellow twine bows through the centers and VOILA!
