WWC221 - The Watercooler Rock Star and Rockers


Drum roll, please!  It's Tuesday and time to announce our Watercooler Rock Star and Watercooler Rockers for Tristan's Masculine "Anything Goes" challenge.  But first, we'd like to thank all those who played along with us.  Beautiful entries that make our choices so much harder, but we think you are all stars.  Well done!

Tristan's choice for our Watercooler Rock Star is Vicki's interactive turtle card design.  Following the winner are the Watercooler Artists choices for the Watercooler Rockers.


Tristan's Rock Star: I love her interactive card with that adorable turtle stuck upside down till he gets a helping tug! Vicki's
created a lovely scene and I love the texture she's added with the DSP and twine crosses.

 Congratulations Vicki!  Here is your badge to proudly display on your blog designating you as our Watercooler Rock Star.


Next up are all the wonderful designs that caught the eyes of the other Watercooler Artists for our Watercooler Rockers.  They are shown in no particular order.

Michelle's Rocker:  I love the scene Lynne has created with those darling row of birds.  The different coloured wings make them all individuals!  Beautiful card, Lynne.
 
Karen's Rocker: Claire has created a very nice Father's Day card.  I love her dramatic skyline, fun sentiment and adorable "Supper Pup".

Dawn's Rocker:  AJ’s gnomes are so colourful and fun. Love the sentiment background with the various hello sentiments. Everything looks great together.

Kath's Rocker:  The hot air balloon is such a cute image. The colors are perfectly masculine, too. A great overall card.

Heidi's Rocker:  Cathy has worked real magic in creating the colours for that awesome dinosaur and the "prehistoric" background. Having the dinosaur stomp his way across the amazing die-cut sentiment finishes the card off perfectly.

Helen's Rocker:  I just love the fascinating panel Rijacki has created with a combination of gloss transparent texture paste and alcohol inks! So eye-catching!!!

Donna's Rocker:  Lois has created an adorable kitty card for her vet that is sweet and simple, but makes a big impact. The look on the cat's face is exactly how I'd imagine her vet see's many of his patients! I love the way Lois colored the cat and raised the figure above the card to give it depth.

Marsha's Rocker:  Angie has created a wonderfully clean and simple Father's Day card. I really like the background she created behind the cactus.

Congratulations Lynne, Claire, AJ, Marjut, Cathy, Rijacki, Lois and Angie!  Here is your badge to proudly display on your blog designating you as one of our Watercooler Rockers.


That's our lineup for this week's Watercooler Rock Star and Watercooler Rockers.  Be sure to come back tomorrow, April 22nd, for our next Watercooler Wednesday Challenge.  You won't want to miss all the wonderful designs by our Watercooler Artists.

WWC220 - The Watercooler Rock Star and Rockers


Drum roll, please!  It's Tuesday and time to announce our Watercooler Rock Star and Watercooler Rockers for Kath's "All About Occasions" challenge.  But first, thank you to everyone who entered the challenge.  Your projects are beautiful and we are so glad you played along with us this week.  Well done!

Kath's choice for our Watercooler Rock Star is Natasa's beautiful rose cluster card design.  Following the winner are the Watercooler Artists choices for the Watercooler Rockers.

Kath's Rock Star:  Natasa's roses are simply beautiful, perfectly colored! The pinks, greens and gray are so beautiful together! The card is one anyone would be happy to receive.

Congratulations Natasa!  Here is your badge to proudly display on your blog designating you as our Watercooler Rock Star.


Next up are all the wonderful designs that caught the eyes of the other Watercooler Artists for our Watercooler Rockers.  They are shown in no particular order.

Heidi's Rocker:  I love everything about Shawna's creation. The unusual background and the slanted design combine to enhance and bring focus to the gorgeous bird and blossoms. My first instinct would be to frame it.

Marsha's Rocker:  I love the bold alcohol ink lift background Tanvi has created.  Her coloring of the cups and flowers is excellent.  I really like the overall design of her card.

Dawn's Rocker:  Lee Ann’s card caught my eye with the pop of purple pink flowers against the lovely grey stenciled background. The sliver of the patterned paper in the right side adds and interesting element.

Tristin's Rocker:  I love her adorable piggy with her beautiful colouring and scene. He made me smile and want to blow bubbles too.

Karen's Rocker:  Lynda has created a beautiful card with a vintage feel. Her polychromo coloring is lovely against the subtle distress ink background .

Michelle's Rocker:  I love the use of the pin point die, it frames that cute little hamster so well. That balloon looks like it is just floating off the card front. Fun card Darnell.
Donna's Rocker:  Rahmat's Mother's Day Card is beautiful! With all the colors and textures, it's hard to believe it's a single-layer card.!!! I love how she used the stencil to create the texture of a stone wall, and then colored in the top "stones" as the background for the flowers. Great job on masking, too!

Congratulations Shawna, Tanvi, Lee Ann, Ishani, Lynda, Darnell and Rahmat!  Here is your badge to proudly display on your blog designating you as one of our Watercooler Rockers.


That's our lineup for this week's Watercooler Rock Star and Watercooler Rockers.  Be sure to come back tomorrow, April 15th, for our next Watercooler Wednesday Challenge.  You won't want to miss all the wonderful designs by our Watercooler Artists.
