Cicely's Hat Sketch

Oh Claire and those Mischief Makers are up to something FUN at the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge Blog today!   Check out this week's sketch:

Heee!  That Claire!  I chose to accept this challenge, and made a little witch's hat tag!

I cut a little triangle from kraft paper, and then stamped it with the chevron stripes pattern from Off Beat Backgrounds in Black Soot Distress ink.  Decided those stripes would look just as good as the brim of the hat, so stamped them in orange and cut them out!  Stamped the circle from Cicely at Halloween, and colored it with Copic markers.  I thought some magical sparkle was in order, and used a Spica Pen in a peachy orange color, and a Sakura Stardust glitter pen...

The sparkle even hides some of my coloring mistakes :)!

The Mischief Makers have shown that the sky is the limit for this creative sketch!  Add your creation HERE by next Friday.  Be sure to include at least one Waltzingmouse Stamps image in your creation so you will be eligible to be the randomly-selected participant who will win a WMS set of choice!
