Beauty comes from within

Here is an image from Mo Manning that I just love and I've had it colored for quite some time, but I just needed to put it together.  I used a sentiment that was a freebie from TLC.  I used a paper from SEI and then to contrast the die cut I painted the edges with white acrylic paint to make them stand out more.  The challenge at Mo's is things starting with "F" with naturally is fabulous, farm animal, flowers, frolic in the grass, friends, fur.  This is my first time coloring dark skin which I received the help of Candy from the TLC design team who suggested the colors of: E13, E11, and E21 so that is what I used in that order.

Patterned Paper:  SEI; Paper Studio
Cardstock:  Bazzil; Recollection
Stamp:  Mo Manning - Daffodils
Sentiment:  TLC, Create - Beauty comes from within
Spellbinder:  Fleur de Lis square
Border Punch:  EK Success
Flowers:  Prima & Recollections
Acrylic Paint:  Accent - white wash
