Papertrey Ink Texture Paste Cupcake Card

This week over at the Papertrey Ink Make it Monday challenge, the challenge is to use texture paste with stencils and ink. I love the look of texture paste with stencils but had never tried painting it with ink before, so this was a fun new technique to try. 
I started with a white 5X7 inch card base. I used a Tim Holtz stencil taped in place with washi tape and added Faber Castell cement color texture paste with a palette knife. Then, using a paint brush with the stencil still in place, I painted on Mister Huey's "Pretty Pink" ink (it's more red than pink, but that suited my color scheme here). I let that dry while making my cupcake using Papertrey Ink's "Enclosed Cupcake" die set. You can't really see it in the picture, but the cherry on top is cut out of sparkly red felt. I adhered it to the card with foam squares to pop it up a bit.
I also added the "Hooray" die cut using a die from Papertrey Ink's "Shaker Shapes Balloon" die set.
Here's a close-up of the painted texture paste.
