Also, add subtle gradients to fills and remove the black from the border, for the handle part of the wand, dark brown might work, for the stars, probably some sort of orange border could work nicely. Also, though it's not necessary, it would be good to make the icon following the Tango Icon Theme Guidelines . > Thank You! > Thank you as well and welcome to the team! > ~Chris~ > Martin References:  http://tango.freedesktop.org/Tango_Icon_Theme_Guidelines > > ______________________________________________________________________ > Sign in now!
