Raking Girls

I worked up two cards using the MFT raking girl.  The first is my typical fall scene with a masked and sponged background, sponged leaves, and a slider.  I love seeing her actually rake leaves.  So cute! Although I raked leaves the other day--I should have added much rosier cheeks and sweat to her.  LOL.

For the other I experimented with skin tone.  I love how she turned out.  I do wish I could have kept her turtleneck yellow as I had intended but I picked up the wrong color at one point and had to orange her top up to cover it.  I also applied jeans texture to her pants.  Neat!
