African Safari

This week's theme at Tag Tuesday is Africa. I decided to play with a safari theme incorporating giraffes.
Be sure to visit Tag Tuesday during the week to see all the players' interpretations.

First I layered 3 digital images using my PSE software:
the Graphics Fairy map of Africa
Lunagirl Moonbeams giraffe from Animals at the Zoo collage sheet
Gecko Galz travel poster from Vintage Travels collage sheet and car from Vintage Cars collage sheet.
I put a shadow frame behind the poster and darkened up the vintage car with a dimensional shadow.

After printing this out, I placed it on a black mat, added a tab (Stampin' Up punch), a metal "A", and a word label (safari).
