WWC119 - The Winners

We'd like to thank everyone who played along with Judy's Masculine "Anything Goes" Challenge this week.  The Watercooler Artists enjoyed visiting your blogs to see all of you great masculine cards.

Starting us off is Judy's pick for her winner.  She chose Kathy Klersy's wonderful peaceful deer Father's Day card.  Following the winner are the Watercooler Artists picks for Honourable Mentions.

Judy's Winner:  I love all the different technique elements and this is truly a fabulous masculine card!

Congratulations, Kathy.  Here is your badge to proudly display on your blog designating you as our challenge winner.


This week, and each week going forward, our Watercooler Artists share their picks for Honorable Mentions.
Marsha's Pick:  I love silhouettes and this one of father and daughter tugged at my heartstrings; beautiful.

Kath's Pick:  I like the cityscape with the added circles.  It gives a futuristic feel to the city.

Heidi's Pick:  I love the way the coloured paste gives such body to the giraffe and all the textured leaves add to the "wildness."  All those colours together are simply gorgeous.

Gail's Pick:  The pop of green against the black background is so striking.  I love the CAS design.

Penny's Pick:  I liked the bold beautiful squares and being a dog lover, the images immediately caught my eye.  I like how she moved the images around on the card.

Libby's Pick:  The pirate is cute and nicely colored.

Fiona's Pick:  I love the muted colours and the way she has coloured the bird.

Diane, Marina, Loopyloocards, Nandini, Caroline, Kathy and Robyn, here is your badge to proudly display on your blog designating you as an Honourable Mention.


Be sure to stop back tomorrow, May 24th, for our next Watercooler Wednesday Challenge.  You'll want to be sure to check out the wonderful creations by the Watercooler Artists.

Winner, winner---where's the Winner?

Surprised that the Winner's Post hasn't been launched.  We've adjusted the hours to allow a new way of choosing winners.  Yes, you will still find out on Tuesdays but from now on it won't be until 5 p.m. Mountain Time.  Stay posted for a whole new look at the Winning Line-Up.
