CD Sunday challenge - Any Old Iron

Time for another Challenge at the CD Sunday Challenge blog and this time its Jocelyn's choice,   Any Old Iron
When I first saw this title I had no idea what to do,  it took quite a bit of thought,  having thought of a rag and bone man which we never see any more,   I could not get an image I liked but looking at the free images on google I found two of Steptoe and son.
Now I am of an age that remember these programs and after I lot of playing around with some die cuts,  distressing them and cutting bits off them this is what I came up with.
The backing paper came from the Crafters Compendium free CD which was free a couple of months ago,  originally this card was for the last challenge but I changed my mind as to the shape and then used it for this card.   I matted the images onto a dark gray a piece of card before putting them onto a lighter piece of embossed gray card.   I wanted to keep it to limited colours as the programs where in black and white.  The sentiment I generated on the computer.
I hope you will visit the CD Sunday Challenge site,  and remember if you want to enter the challenge you must use something from a CD no matter how small and let us know which CD you used.  Here is a link to CD Sunday Challenge blog  we would be pleased to see you.
I hope you are having a lovely weekend
