Coloring a Witches Hat

I've been having tons of fun coloring and creating with Halloween stamps lately. Here's one I made using stamps from Eat Cake Graphics.

Isn't that witch a hoot?!!! Hazel the witch is getting her boogie on, but I wonder what she is out collecting in that pumpkin? Hopefully some yummy candy! LOL To color the witch's hat, and give it creases and folds, I followed a tutorial over on the Spectrum Noir Blog. You can find the tutorial HERE.

I colored most of the images with Spectrum Noir Markers. The grass is stamped by coloring Bud Green and Moss Spectrum Aqua Markers colored directly on the stamp. Then I did a quick watercolor wash to blend it out. Hazels dress has tiny dots all over it, which I added with a black micron pen. To give her glasses some dimension, I colored over with a Versamark marker and heat embossed clear. I cut out a few of tombstones and popped up for a bit for dimension. Then I stamped the full Graveyard image a few times on the card base for a tone-on-tone look. The sentiment is heat embossed. 

Here's the Spectrum Noir Markers I colored with:
Hat & Shoes - IG1, IG9, IG4
Skin - EB1, EB2, IG3, FS3
Hair - GG1, GG5, Black
Dress - PL2, PL4, PL1
Glasses - OR2, IG9
Pumpkin - OR1, OR2, OR3, GB4, CT4, CG3
Tombstones - GG1, GG2
