WWC152 - The Winners!

It's Tuesday and that means it's time to announce the Rock Star and Rockers for Kath's "All About Occasions" Challenge.  But first, we'd like to thank everyone who played along with us.  Your entries, as always, were wonderful.  It's makes our choices so much harder.  Well done to all.

Kath's choice for our Watercooler Rock Star is Nonni beautiful pink rose card. Following the winner are the Watercooler Artists choices for the Watercooler Rockers.

 Kath's Winner:  The coloring is Amazing! Overall the card looks so fresh.

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


Now it's on to the Watercooler Artists choices for our Watercooler Rockers.  They are shown in no particular order.

Marsha's Choice:  Caroline's adorable little chameleon definitely put a smile on my face.  Beautiful coloring and I like all the dimension she added by simply using foam tape.  And, it was clever to make the word peace from a foam sheet and then color it.

Gail's Choice:  The colours are so vibrant and I love how the frame was created.

Judy's Choice:  The coloring of the image is fabulous and I love everything about the overall project.

Heidi's Choice:  I love the way Carol mimicked the shape of the violin with that lovely stitched die-cut behind the beautiful roses. Of course the roses are a wonder on their own, the way she has coloured and shaded them.

Helen's Choice:  Very dainty, elegant and clean and simple. Just perfect for a sympathy card.

Charlotte's Choice:  I love the clean and simple design. A great gender-neutral anniversary card.

Penny's Choice:  I'm loving this beautiful cake and the colouration of this wonderful anniversary card. Very elegant!

Congratulations Caroline, Izzy Scrap, Hazel, Carol, Magic Flying Boots, Anita in France and Tinstar Designs.   Here is your badge to proudly display on your blog designating you as our Watercooler Rockers.


There you have our Rock Star and Watercooler Rockers lineup for this week!  Be sure to come back tomorrow, January 17th, for our next Watercooler Wednesday Challenge.  You won't want to miss out on all the wonderful designs by our Watercooler Artists.

WWC151 - The Winners

It's Tuesday and that means it's time to announce the Rock Star and Rockers for Charlotte's Feminine "Anything Goes" Challenge.  But first, we'd like to thank everyone who played along with us.  Your entries, as always, were wonderful.  It's makes our choices so much harder.  Well done to all.

Charlotte's choice for our Watercooler Rock Star is Toni's adorable purple fairies card. Following the winner are the Watercooler Artists choices for the Watercooler Rockers.

Now it's on to the Watercooler Artists choices for our Watercooler Rockers.

Marsha's Choice:  Jane's iris fold hummingbird and flower are beautifully done.  I love the sparkle.  It gives a wonderful iridescent look to them. 

Gail's Choice:  The stenciled background is really vibrant, and yet it doesn't detract from the main image - and I love the little cat sitting by the girl.

Heidi's Choice:  I love that wide-eyed look and the sparkle she added to the wings. The layers of patterns in the background and on the tag behind the fairy are a marvel: so different and yet they compliment each other so well. :)

Judy's Choice:  I love all the technique that went in to this card and I LOVE all the purple!!!!

Kath's Choice:  A well-colored card.  I love that mermaid image.

Penny's Choice:  Sequins, string and splatters along with a great combination of back ground elements make this beautiful butterfly card soar! Well done.

Helen's Choice:  This design is delightful in it's simplicity and wonderful use of bright watercolouring.
