WWC91 - Marsha's Masculine "Anything Goes" Challenge

Woo Hoo!  This is going to be an amazing challenge.  We all need more masculine cards, right? Well, Marsha Reed is hosting a Masculine "Anything Goes" challenge this week.  How great is that?


So basically you just have to think masculine.  Otherwise anything goes.  It can be as simple or as fancy as you please.  It can be for a birthday, anniversary, Christmas, or anything at all.  Your choice.  You can see from the diversity of the cards created by our Watercooler Artists that there is a huge range of options open to you.  As usual, if you click on the name under each card, you can visit the blog post to see details on how the card was created.   We begin with Marsha's wonderful masculine card.










And now it's your turn.  You can join us by linking up your creation with the InLinkz at the bottom of this challenge.

          1.  This must be a new project---no back-linking to a previous post.

WWC90 - Libby's Simply Stamped "Black on White" Challenge

Woo Hoo!  It's time for one of our special challenges, a "Simply Stamping" challenge hosted by Libby Fens.  This challenge is all about simplicity.  And what could be more simple than Black on White?  Before we get to the terrific samples created by our Watercooler Artists, let's talk about what we're expecting if you decide to link your creation to this challenge.

 "Simply Stamping" is a return to basics.  We expect either one single stamped layer or a base with one single layer on that.  We expect simple stamping.  You can use masking, heat embossing, stencilling, sponging.  You cannot use an embossing folder or embellishments or additional layers (not even a tag). 


We're really just looking for simple stamping.  The results?  A stunning selection of graphic images in black and white.  Just wait until you see what we've created as samples!  There are cards for almost every occasion---and there is even some zentangling.  Excited?  We begin with Libby's elegant Christmas pines.









And now it's your turn.  You can join us by linking up your creation with the InLinkz at the bottom of this challenge.  

Remember:
          1.  This must be a new project---no back-linking to a previous post.
          2.  You must link your project back to our challenge (details at top of page).
          3.  You must link directly to your post, not simply your general blog.
          4.  Please link to no more than 4 challenges, including ours.
          5.  Remember what we want to see in a clean and simple creation.
          6.  Have fun!

WWC89 - Penny's Color Challenge

Welcome to another challenge with our Watercooler Artists.  This week it's a terrific Color Challenge hosted by Penny Hanuszak.  The colours are a very simple, very elegant Tip Top Taupe, Soft Sky, and Whisper White---with some Silver thrown in.  Are you up for the challenge?


No, those butterflies showing the colours aren't part of the theme or challenge, although you'll see that one of our Watercooler Artists has taken her inspiration from them.

We have some great samples created by the Watercooler Artists to get your creative juices flowing. As usual, if you click on the name under each card, you can visit the blog post to see details on how the card was created.   We begin with Penny's wonderful collection of delicate ornaments.  Doesn't that silver add an elegant touch?








And now it's your turn.  You can join us by linking up your creation with the InLinkz at the bottom of this challenge.  

Remember:
          1.  This must be a new project---no back-linking to a previous post.
