Spooky Sparkling Bats

Art Glitter and Dreamweaver Stencils are working together this month to celebrate "An Awesome Autumn"!  Today, I have a Halloween bat card to share.  It was easy to make and lots of fun.  let me show you how.
Art Glitter Sticky Paper
Art Glitter Ultrafine Pearlescent 143 Glow in the Dark
Art Glitter Microfine Pearlescent 533 Mini Pearl
Art Glitter Ultrafine Transparent 168 Black Light
Art Glitter Ultrafine Opaque 157 Purple Lame
Art Glitter Ultrafine Opaque 79 Black
Dreamweaver Double Stick Mounting Paper
Dreamweaver LL525 Bat Stencil
Dreamweaver Palette Knife
Dreamweaver Black Glossy Embossing Paste
Dreamweaver Stencil LM 2010 Paste Spreader
Scotch Removable Tape
K & Company Patterned Halloween Paper
Black Card Stock
White Card Stock
A Pen

1)  Trace any well sized round object onto Art Glitter Sticky Paper. 
2)  Cut out circle.
3)  Remove protective paper and cover circle with Glow in the Dark Glitter.  Be sure to rub it in with your fingers.
4)  Brush off the excess Glow in the Dark Glitter.
5)  Repeat steps 3 and 4 with Microfine Pearlescent Glitter.  When you use the microfine glitter, it should get between the ultrafine specks and make your paper stay a little whiter.
6)  Remove one side of the Dreamweaver mounting paper and place the "moon" you have created inside.
 7)  Pour a little of the Black Light Glitter around the moon and rub in with your fingers.  This will create the "glowing" effect.  Brush off the excess.
 8)  Pour the Purple Lame Glitter around the edges and rub in.
9)  Place the stencil over the top and tape all the way around the edges with the removable tape.
10) Use the Palette Knife to place Black Embossing Paste onto the Paste Spreader.
 11)  Place the edge of the spreader on the stencil and pull across.
 12)  Remove the stencil and cover the paste with the Black Glitter.
13)  Shake off the excess glitter. 
14)  Assemble the card.
