WWC226 - The Watercooler Rock Star and Rockers


Drum roll, please!  It's Tuesday and time to announce our Watercooler Rock Star and Watercooler Rockers for Dawn'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!

Dawn's choice for our Watercooler Rock Star is Mac's fantastic silhouette card design.  Following the winner are the Watercooler Artists choices for the Watercooler Rockers.

Dawn's Rock Star:  This monochromatic card by Mac caught my eye. The texture from the crackle medium as well as the stenciled background really make this an awesome masculine card.

Congratulations Mac!  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:  Gerrina has created a very interesting scene. I like the silhouettes against the blues she stenciled into this intriguing design.

Tristan's Rocker:  Marianne has created a great card with lots of movement on it with the waves and the whale tail flipping that water. Love how the focus is on the side. Great design.

Michelle's Rocker:  Joy’s Super Dad is so fun and the bright striped background makes him pop even more! A great Fathers Day card that any Dad would cherish.

Kath's Rocker:  Trina's Technique embossing made a wonderful background for her beach scene which is amazing! Her use of color is wonderful and makes a great background for her duck.

Karen's Rocker:  Pooja has created such a fun card! I love her ombre watercoloring, adorable image and ink blending on the card base.

Heidi's Rocker:  What a unique card Lesley has created! Her base cardstocks perfectly compliment the colours in the photo which she took and used. The Adventure Guy image is beautifully coloured with her Copics and that map, which she has personalized with her own map image is perfect. Well done!

Congratulations Gerrina, Marianne, Joy, Trina, Pooja and Lesley!  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, June 26th, for our next Watercooler Wednesday Challenge.  You won't want to miss all the wonderful designs by our Watercooler Artists.

WWC226 - Dawn's Masculine "Anything Goes" Challenge

Woo Hoo!  Dawn is hosting our awesome Masculine "Anything Goes" challenge this week.  What a lot of fun since Father's Day was just over the weekend and a lot of people made some great cards for the many Dads of all ages out there.  Of course there are so many other occasions for masculine cards, too.


We're sorry to announce that Donna decided to begin part-time employment and, with all the other things going on in her life, simply can't juggle the challenge as well.  We'll miss her inspiring cards.

And now on to the terrific projects by the Watercooler Artists to get your creative juices flowing.  I love how wonderfully diverse all our creations are this week, don't you?   For details on how Dawn and the other Watercooler Artists created their projects, just click on the name underneath and you will be taken to that blog post.  We begin with Dawn's bold silhouette birthday card:

WWC225 - The Watercooler Rock Star and Rockers


Drum roll, please!  It's Tuesday and time to announce our Watercooler Rock Star and Watercooler Rockers for Donna'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!

Donna's choice for our Watercooler Rock Star is Trina's cute little elephant.  Following the winner are the Watercooler Artists choices for the Watercooler Rockers.

Donna's Rock Star:  Trina created a SUPER cute card with a little elephant swinging through the clouds!!! Love her background coloring, and the elephant and balloon are perfect! I've never tried a swing card, but with Trina's inspiration I sure AM gonna try one.

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.

Karen's Rocker:  I love the beautiful bloom that Kylie created with Zig markers. The cover die panel is the perfect backdrop for her vivid pinks and oranges.

Marsha's Rocker:  I love the background Tammy has created using the nail polish art technique.  The colors are bright and vibrant and the cacti with the blue flowers are very pretty.

Dawn's Rocker:   Angie has made a striking card. The pop of colour against the black background drew my eye. The addition of the fabric tape gives a great look. Also super impressed that Angie only used one colour of ink for the flowers.

Tristan's Rocker:  Steph has created a wonderful scene on her card, I love the textures, the colouring of her birds and her persistence with all that fussy cutting.

Michelle's Rocker:  Charlotte has created an adorable card. I love the scene she has created and her colouring in of those bears is just perfect!

Heidi's Rocker:   Cat has created a darling CAS card for her father from his cats. Such cute images and so very well coloured and shaded. I love the way she grounded them with that pillowy gray around them.

Kath's Rocker:   Lesley's Mr. Fixit Is a great birthday card! Her coloring is wonderful and the paper she chose compliments the image well.

Congratulations Kylie, Tammy, Angie, Steph, Charlotte, Cat and Lesley!  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, June 19th, for our next Watercooler Wednesday Challenge.  You won't want to miss all the wonderful designs by our Watercooler Artists.
