WWC212 - 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 "All About Occasions" 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 Trina's cute reindeer Christmas card design.  Following the winner are the Watercooler Artists choices for the Watercooler Rockers.


Tristan's Rock Star:   Trina has created a fab Christmas card. I love the ink smooshed background behind the sentiment and how she's used the adorable reindeer antlers as the 'Y' in merry. Great colouring with her copics.

Congratulations Trina!  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.

Marsha's Rocker:  I love these sweet snowmen that Marlene has so beautifully colored. The combination of patterned work so well together.

Donna's Rocker:   I love Marina's succulent card! Her many shades of green are beautiful - such expert coloring!!! The contrast between the pink pots and greenery is really eye catching, too! I appreciate how Marina included instructions and step-by-step photos.

Heidi's Rocker:   Sue has created a wonderful birthday card with those gorgeous die-cut and watercoloured Azaleas. I love the CAS design as well. A stunning creation.

Dawn's Rocker:   The beautiful blending on the lilies is amazing. I’m in awe of Rahmat’s colouring abilities. I love the sentiment which finishes the card perfectly.

Karen's Rocker:   I love the watercolored framed flower with the coordinating watercolored background. Robyn has created a lovely floral card.

Michelle's Rocker:   I love the tissue paper background and how it has been stamped with the music note background stamp. The reindeer is so cute in his little jumper and it just pops against that die cut frame.

Helen's Rocker:   Mac's card is so eye-catching with it's striking shiny red poppies against the black and white flowers. Love all the clever design elements.

Kath's Rocker:   The silhouette of the father and child makes for a feel-good card! Great Father's Day Card.

Congratulations Marlene, Marina, Sue, Rahmat, Robyn, Marianne, Mac and Mia!  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, March 20th, for our next Watercooler Wednesday Challenge.  You won't want to miss all the wonderful designs by our Watercooler Artists.

Marsha's Rocker:   Rahmat has created a gorgeous daffodil. I love the purple color she has chosen. She did a wonderful job of coloring. Well done!

Heidi's Rocker:   Marianne's watercolouring through that gorgeous stencil makes for an outstanding card. Love the addition of the splatters and that perfect sentiment.

Tristan's Rocker:   Nat has created a great card that tells a story of a girl sightseeing. I love her colouring of the girl and how she kept the sentiment simple.

Dawn's Rocker:   Nisha has made a beautiful understated card. The splatters are just the right amount of texture and the silver stripe is very elegant. Love the CAS look.

Donna's Rocker:   Monika's feminine card is BEAUTIFUL! The pattern she chose for the dress is perfect for the stamped image. I always forget about this clever technique, but you have inspired me to try it myself. Monika's masked background really makes her card stand out!

Karen's Rocker:   Pooja has created a fabulous hand-drawn blackboard card. The colored pencils really compliment her drawing. Artistic, funky and beautiful!

Helen's Rocker:   Ishani has created a beautiful card celebrating International Women's Day. The sentiment is perfect and fits wonderfully with her gorgeous image! Well done!
