More Guest Artists

I had such a fun time posting cards from my friend Mahnaaz that I thought I would post more of cards I received from friends (with permission of course). Posting cards made by other people has its pros and cons. It is great to see other styles and ideas. Plus, I don't have to do the work. :) On the down side, what if their cards make my cards look bad? What if people start to demand all guest artist cards? Aaaggh...the downside of a fragile ego.

I recently received four cards using grungeboard as a medium. I thought I would post two today and two in a couple more days. After all, you don't want to go through grungeboard overload!

Jennifer made the first card with the three flowers. She ran cream cardstock through her Cuttlebug using a patterned embossing folder. She then ran the grungeboard through with flower shaped die cuts. She colored the flowers with Colorwash spray and a shimmery mist. Remember, the beauty of grungeboard is that it won't warp as you spray it over and over. She stamped leaves by Denami Design and added some brads for interest. Here is a close up of the flowers so that you can see the shimmer:

Tami made the second card with the fruit. She also ran her grungeboard through the Cuttlebug to cut out the pear and apple. Can we say great minds? She colored the fruit using water-based markers. She assembled the card with stamps by Stampin' Up and added a ribbon to finish the card. I wanted to include a close-up of the fruit to show you how cool markers look on the grungeboard:

Do I have talented friends, or what?!
