WOJ September Blog Hop

Welcome to the Whiff Of Joy September Blog Hop. If you are just starting with us head on over the WOJ Blog. If you just came from  Kathrin's Blog you are in the right place!

This month, Whiff of Joy is releasing special holiday images that will be perfect for your Christmas cards, albums and decorations. Once again, we have paired up some very sweet sentiments with the images so that you will have the perfect saying to go along with your creation. You LOVE our die-lights and we think that you will be blown away with our newest ones and we are continuing to add to our line of nested die-lights with two more sets! We also have some English & German School themed sentiments and two German Christmas themed sentiment sets! This month, we will be giving one stamp and one die-light from our new release to one very lucky winner. The winner will be drawn from the comments on our DT blogs. At the end of the hop, go back to the Whiff of Joy World of Ideas Blog, let us know that you have left a comment at each stop of the hop by using the inlinkz tool and you will be entered for a chance to win!
 The hop will remain open until midnight Monday September 30th CEST. Winners will be announced on the Whiff of Joy World of Ideas Blog.
 So I tried a clever coloring technique that I see my ever so talented DT member Clarissa try. Here is an example of the coloring I am referring to with Pirate Henry here.
See how she uses just one color and makes it looks FABO! I love that however was scared to try it. So I did... And well maybe I should of gone with a neutral color or the black and white she does at times. Yet I wanted the Christmas feel and colors to it so I used red and green. What do you think? Me too... not quite sure... It used the new image called Wonderful Christmas.

Colored the image in red shades using Copics and did a green coloring for the outer edges. These fabulous flowers are with our Die-Light Nested Flowers Two with some Pearl brad centers with a touch of sparkle. Some lace trim along the one side and Voila! Hope you are enjoying the hop this month.
Your next hop along the way is over to  Jeanet's Blog!  Happy Shopping!

And once again my cute little favorit here, and it looks awesome to just use the one color. That´s definitely a technique, that I´m going to try out too. I love the look of it.

Eine tolle Karte hast du da gemacht. Ist mal was Anderes und etwas ungewöhnlich, wenn das Motiv in rot ist, aber sieht gar nicht so übel aus.

Liebe Grüße Andrea

I would have never thought about coloring an image all in reds, but it works beautifully!
