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. Much thanks to all of you for your kind comments each week. You all are wonderful!

  4. Love this! Two sided is a great idea - the back of my tags are often messy affairs! The red embossing is genius! Carolyn xx

  7. Hi Laura - This is a really great tag - double sided is genius and the layers on the front are very special. I have never before seen the transparent tape, but what a good effect it creates.
