I was so inspired by Lynne K's screen card (here), that I decided to use these fun Little Miss Muffet and Make It Crafty Graffiti Party images on my own screen card:
This was my first attempt at making a screen card. DCWV white core cardstock allowed for a bit of detail to show when sanded. Zutter's 1/2" Round-it-All corner rounder softened my tops. The base of the large tag from a Sizzix Traditional Combo Tags die cut through all four panels to square off the bottoms. I lost a leg or two while running the panels through the die cut machine to emboss with Sizzix Tim Holtz Alterations Bricked Texture Fade then lightly sanded the raised bricks. A golden leaf charm hangs from a jump ring on a hemp bow. A Sakura Gelly Roll medium white pen adds some sharp highlights to my eyeglasses and graffiti letters. A Stampers Anonymous Tim Holtz Collection Stuff to Say sentiment fits nicely on the last panel.
Other than my loss of legs, I like the embossed look of the background. I need to work on reinforcing and strengthening the legs to be able to hold the weight of my images and heavier embellishments on future screen cards. They do make nice displays for scenery.
