History on a card!

I had taken this image from a comical book on the history of bicycles for the Caardvarks challenge – Transport – when I saw that Mixed Media Monday’s theme this week is Men… so bingo, 2 for 1! However the best bit is that the card depicts the story of the Velocipede and the 1869 London – Brighton race between 2 young men, actually reported in The Times!

Velocipede

The pocket watch is from Tandastamps (Backgrounds 1), stamped onto clear shrink plastic and attached with a paperclip! Ribbons are Dovecraft. Who said papercrafting wasn’t educational? 😉
