Vintage Journey - IKB
As I have a little time at the moment I thought I'd make a card for the Vintage Journey Challenge where the theme is to use a Portrait. I couldn't think of a personal one to use so went with this famous portrait of Isambard Kingdom Brunel.
He's a hero in our house as my husband is a Railway Engineer and both my daughters were given Brunel awards at school for doing well in Maths and Physics. One year an actor came into school to do the assembly and sang a song about IKB hence the title!!
The challenge is based on Tim Holtz style so I've done a swooshy mix of Pine Needles, Iced Spruce, Broken China and Salty Ocean for the background and mopped up the excess with the seam binding. The stamps are from Tim's Steampunk set plus the Checker Plate from Kaisercraft to carry on the metallic theme. The frame and gears were painted with black acrylic and Silver Dabber and to finish I've just added the Discoveries Word Band.
Not very good daylight this morning to take a photo but I hope you like what you see. Thanks for popping by and for leaving a comment - they are always very much appreciated.
