Texture Paste Stenciled Shell Card

Remember the stencils I created from my shell SVG file?  Previously I used them with ink to create a vintage style card.  This time around I used texture paste to create a dimensional focal point for this nautical card. 
I cut a small square of shimmery scrap cardstock and placed the stencil on top of it.  I use stencil adhesive on the back for a good seal.  Then, I took a palette knife and spread a medium coat of paste over the stencil.  I carefully lifted the stencil away and immediately washed it off.  I set the textured paper aside overnight to dry.
After the paste was dry, I lightly went over the design with Distress Ink to tone down the white color of the paste.  This stenciled shell was a perfect compliment to using up more of the nautical paper and embellishments in my stash (K & Company Tim Coffey "Travel Voyage")
