Welcome to Day #5 of the Clear Scraps + Quick Quotes Blog Hop!
Clear Scraps is teaming with Quick Quotes for a great blog hop this week. For my CS-QQ project, I've made a Thanksgiving wall hanging.
"Holiday" is from Clear Scraps Expressions (Small). I colored the back by daubing on alcohol inks in purple, yellow, orange and green, until I had a nice fall blend.
Then I sponged metallic bronze acrylic paint on the back.
The acrylic paint gives the letters a little metallic glitz and helps the colors pop against the dark background.
The leaf embellishments are from Quick Quotes Bag o' Chips and were embossed with Globecraft Memories' Piccolo Embossing powders I also did some stamping on the chipboard and embossed with more of the Piccolo powders.
Be sure to check out the other design posts for the hop today!

Great tutorial and I love your color choices and how you created your fall blend of colors. Gotta try using alchol inks. The looks they create are fabulous. TFS.
