Mabelle RO: Autumn Angel

Today, Mabelle has a new release.  This is Autumn Angel.  Isn't she sweet.

I used a new technique on the background.  Shelby has a couple awesome video tutorials on her blog.  You can see it HERE.  Essentially you use a q-tip and 0 {Zero} reinker and go over the background, then apply the color with a q-tip too.  I did this for the sky and the grass. 

The image was cut out and layered on the background.  The sunflower is popped.
