WWC208 - The Watercooler Rock Star and Rockers

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

Charlotte's choice for our Watercooler Rock Star is Sharon's ink splatting card design.  Following the winner are the Watercooler Artists choices for the Watercooler Rockers.

Charlotte's Winner:  Sharon has created a fantastic clean and simple design. The splashes of colour are really fun, and the sentiment over them stands out wonderfully.

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


Next up are the other wonderful designs that caught the eyes of the other Watercooler Artists for our Watercooler Rockers.  They are shown in no particular order.




Karen's Choice:  I love the fun dog scene! Rosali's beautiful watercoloring has brought each pup to life. Perfectly executed.

Marsha's Choice:  Dena has designed a beautiful card.  I love how she offset each die-cut layer to give dimension and depth.  The flower is a great addition.  Very well done.


Heidi's Choice:  Mac has created a stunning CAS card which, as it turns out, wasn’t so simple to make. The wonderful raised script and floral outline, both stencilled using embossing paste, add to the elegance. I love the glittery, metallic raised petals, so subtly coloured. The combination of the die-cut and stamped sentiment really adds the perfect finishing touch.


Dawn's Choice:  The alcohol ink background is amazing (Love Purple) what a great way to die cut the hearts on the edge of the white panel, makes them pop!

Gail's Choice:  I just love the expressions and the poses of those three gentlemen. I can picture them sitting on a park bench, watching the world go by. They colouring is great and the DSP patterns are a great combination.

Tristan's Choice:  Ellibelle has created a fabulous multi-media looking card, with faded script, stunning colours and a great effect with the water colour wash background.

Helen's Choice:  Tip Top has made a wonderfully delicate, feminine card with a beautifully coloured image and gorgeous die cut.

Donna's Choice:  Linda's rose is beautifully made with Brusho crystals on watercolor paper. The rectilinear diecut background is an inspired contrast that lifts and highlights her 3-D rose as the card's centerpiece. Well done, Linda!

Kath's Choice:  Deepti's Little ballerina is perfectly spotlighted. I love the stamping on the ribbon. It's a card any young ballerina would love.

Congratulations Dena, Rosali, Mac, Marina, Natasa, Ellibelle, Ruth, Linda and Deepti!  Here is your badge to proudly display on your blog designating you as one of our Watercooler Rockers.


That's our lineup for this weeks' Watercooler Rock Star and Watercooler Rockers.  Be sure to come back tomorrow, February 20th, for our next Watercooler Wednesday Challenge.  You won't want to miss all the wonderful designs by our Watercooler Artists.

WWC207 - The Watercooler Rock Star and Rockers

Drum roll, please!  It's Tuesday and time to announce our Watercooler Rock Star and Watercooler Rockers for Helen'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 stars.  Well done!
 
Tristan's choice for our Watercooler Rock Star is Marina's lovely paper-pieced printed flower design.  Following the winner are the Watercooler Artists choices for the Watercooler Rockers.

Helen's Winner:  Marina's use of text on the largest flower in this pretty bouquet was on of the clever design elements which took this simple black and white card to the next level!

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


Next up are the other wonderful designs that caught the eyes of the other Watercooler Artists for our Watercooler Rockers.  They are shown in no particular order. 

Heidi's Choice:  Rocky has created such a compelling card with those awesome colours in the splatter. I love the heat embossed eye with the whites coloured in and the gorgeous tiny little jewels along the centre pattern of the eyebrow. Definitely well named with "My Eye is on You".

Marsha's Choice:  Sue has created a gorgeous background to showcase those stunning flowers.  A beautiful and well thought out design.

The background colours are great and pick up on the coloured stripes on the cat. I like that the focal image is not centered, yet the design is balanced by the sentiments.

Tristan's Choice:  Caroline has created a fabulous pink ombré background that showcases the gold sentiment and dots beautifully.

Dawn's Choice:  Tip Top has coloured the girl image beautifully. The balance on the card is very pleasing to the eye with the PP strip and the vellum circle. The faux stitching finishes the card perfectly.

Donna's Choice:   Sharon has created such a sweet card. Love her coloring of the little birds in shades of purple and lilac. Her composition and use of pattern paper to frame the birds is quite perfect!


Charlotte's Choice:  Betty's pretty florals stand out beautifully against that fun background. I love the soft colours, and the gold splatter finishes it off perfectly.


Karen's Choice:  Trina’s card is so eye-catching. Beautiful stamping, masking, ink blending and stenciling.

Kath's Choice:  If sweets really are happiness then this card has got you covered. The back background shows off the image perfectly. It is an all-around fun card.

Congratulations Rocky, Sue, Cornelia, Caroline, Ruth, Sharon, Betty and Trina!  Here is your badge to proudly display on your blog designating you as one of our Watercooler Rockers.



That's our lineup for this weeks' Watercooler Rock Star and Watercooler Rockers.  Be sure to come back tomorrow, February 13th, for our next Watercooler Wednesday Challenge.  You won't want to miss all the wonderful designs by our Watercooler Artists.
