Challenge card

A card this evening for a couple of challenges.

Papertake Weekly - sketch
Charizma cards - anything new (and the roses are new in my stash)
Simon says - shabby chic
Allsorts - pink and brown

Image from papir skatter made it more sepia and put glaze and crackle paint on it.

Not entirely pleased with the outcome, but my shoulders ache so I can't sit any more this evening.

Gonna go and watch Clooney's latest now - he's a hunk, isn't he? ;)

Well I think it looks fabulous!! Love all the aging you've done and making the image more sepia was a great idea!!
Hope you enjoyed Clooney :)

This is gorgeous Helene, I can't understand why you're not completely happy with it!!!

I hope the ache in your shoulders doesn't put you off the film!

I hope you don't mind but I've linked you on my blog in my newest post as the source of inspiration for my latest make :)
