The Watercooler Rock Star and Rockers

Thanks so much for all the wonderful Masculine cards you linked up to Marsha's Anything Goes with a Masculine Twist challenge.  We loved seeing so many varieties of styles and colours.  You Rock!

And now for the choices of Rock Star and Rockers, made by Marsha and the remaining Watercooler Artists:

  The Watercooler Rock Star

Kate (Rijacki's Workshop)
Marsha's Rock Star:  Rijacki has created a wonderful scene full of adventures for a young boy.  I love how she blended the colors from the patterned paper with the colors she used for the image.  The fussy cutting is awesome and makes the scene come together nicely.

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



The Watercooler Rockers

Diane (Nellies Nest)
Karen's Choice:  Diane has created a fun yet dramatic card.  I love the black and white color scheme, the simple yet interesting die-cuts, the googly eyes, and the perfect sentiment.

Hilde (Tindaloo)
Heidi's Choice:  Hilde's choice of die-cuts, background papers and colours is spot-on.  I love the little guy holding the baby dinosaur and, of cours, those large dinosaurs in the background.  A great nod to the Jurassic Movies.

Lynne (Ruby-Dooby-Doo)
Dawn's Choice:  Lynne's birthday card with the sweet dog is adorable.  Love the way she used the porthole die and made great use of the blue paper for a perfect masculine card.

JanR (Huh, So this is a blog...)
Tristan's Choice:  I just adore this little snowman tag and love that you can take him off the tag to become a bookmark.  Jan has created great texture on the hat and scarf with the fuzzy felt foam.

Jane (Onions and Paper)
Kath's Choice:  Jane's card is a great monochromatic masculine card.  I love the classic car stamp used.

Cat (Cat Luvs Paper)
Helen's Choice:  Cat has created a great humorous masculine card.  Her wonderful colouring has brought this fun image to life.  Guaranteed to bring a smile to your face!

Congratulations Diane, Hilde, Lynne, JanR, Jane and Cat!  Here is your badge to proudly display on your blog designating you as one of our Watercooler Rockers.


We would love to see you come back tomorrow, January 29th, for our next Watercooler Wednesday Challenge.  The Watercooler Artists will have lots of inspiration to spark your creativity.
