Sepia tones

When I got this image called "Billy" from Ppinkydolls, 
I wanted to make it look like an old sepia image...

I played about with my lyra pencils and derwent watercolour pencils 
to create the soft colouring, as the image is drawn so softly. 
The challenge this week at Glitter n Sparkle is 
"Anything goes"
so I could play with the sepia technique. 
I used some strips of beige / brown papers
and embossed and softly chalked the background, to give a little more detail. 
The sentiment is stamped on the card base.. it's from craftwork cards.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

QKR Stampede - add a sentiment - 25 March
Crafting with an attitude - atg - 28 March
Through the craft room door - atg - 23 March
Crafting from the heart - atg - 22 March
