It's not Halloween without a little Hocus Pocus going on! This makes for a quick color using any color scheme and doing a simple fade from light to dark. You could mix it up too and color all the letters differently. It's Halloween so anything goes!

 I used Copics (V06 and V09) to color in the Hocus Pocus and then added a thick coat of Glossy Accents to give it a little shine and dimension.

On the inside I kept it simple, adding a little Boo die cut.
