Recently I received this new paint/can die and have been excited to try it out.  There were a lot of challenges this week to craft using something new.  It was the perfect motivation I needed to give it a try even though I ended up entering only one of those challenges! 

The colors have been sponged all over the cutout piece except for the paint can itself.  That was left white.  A brick pattern stencil was used on the lower portion of the piece as well.

The inside of the card reads: “Life is a great big canvas; throw all the paint you can at it.” ~Danny Kaye~
