Tag Tuesday: Africa

Wow, this one just about threw me, but after thinking on it for a week, I remembered some Africa-themed, clearance-bin cards in my stash and set to work.  I wanted this to look like a postcard, so I trimmed the card to a tag size, stamped the back, aged it a bit,  and added a Cape of Good Hope stamped image:
To change up the front a bit, I added a piece of transparent paper tape from Tim Holtz, which looks like newsprint, another Cape of Good Hope stamp, and a heat embossed image in deep red:
For starting with such little inspiration, I'm really happy with the result. I hope your recent creative endeavors have been fun and fruitful!
