Helen's Choice:  Lynda has created a stunning Holiday card with her wonderful coloured background and berries.

Heidi's Choice:  Cornelia's wonderful ombre sponging has created the perfect background for her Hallowe'en silhouettes. Her masking brings this single-layer technique to another level.

Tristan's Choice:  I love Donna’s gorgeous CAS wedding card. The embossed background is perfect for the focal sentiment.

Sheri Lee

Hello, I’m Sheri....a head standing loving yogi that creates cards during my down time. My fave cards to make are either fancy folds or shaker boxes. I enjoy traveling, taste testing the yummiest artisan cheesecakes...searching for turtles and avoiding cilantro at all costs. My favourite colour is purple, I love eggs Benedict and my personal mantra....there is ALWAYS something to be GRATEFUL for everyday.

WWC186 - The Watercooler Rock Star and Rockers!

It's Tuesday and time to announce our Watercooler Rock Star and Watercooler Rockers for Marsha's Feminine "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 starts.  Well done!

Marsha's choice for our Watercooler Rock Star is Stephanie's elegant profile design.  Following the winner are the Watercooler Artists choices for the Watercooler Rockers.


Marsha's Winner:  Stephanie has created a very vibrant and elegant image. Smearing the ink on the stamp with her finger blended the blue and purple together in just the right combination.

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


Next up are the awesome creations that caught the eye of the other Watercooler Artists for our Watercooler Rockers.  They are shown in no particular order.

Kath's Choice:  The candy cane girl is cute by itself! When added to all the elements on the tag it becomes a wow!

Gail's Choice:  It is really creative, with the masked stamping and the double frames. The coloured image is such a pop of colour, yet does not detract from the subtle background.

Crystal's Choice:  Aileen's sweet maternity themed card with an array of colorful presents truly celebrates femininity.

Tristan's Choice:   I love the layout and the colouring of the flowers really makes them pop off the card.

Heidi's Choice:  I love the vivid tones and the bold strokes. Mia has achieved a fun watercolour look with those alcohol markers. Beautiful work!

Helen's Choice:  Pooja's card is stunning with her vibrant colours and pretty background.

Charlotte's Choice:  Ishani has made a beautiful encouragement card. I love the rainbow of pretty flowers, and the peek through window to show the sentiment.

Congratulations, Giulia, Mac Mable, Aileen, Dawn, Mia, Pooja and Ishani.  Here is your badge to proudly display on your blog designating you one of our Watercooler Rockers.

 
There's our lineup for this weeks' Watercooler Rock Star and Watercooler Rockers.  Be sure to come back tomorrow, September 12th, for our next Watercooler Wednesday Challenge.  You won't want to miss all the wonderful designs by our Watercooler Artists.
