Ranger Archival Ink and Texture Pastes 'Cheers' Card

Hello everyone! Here is the fifth card (for a birthday I think) I made for the Ranger booth for Creativation this year, using Archival Inks, Texture Pastes, and lots of Wendy Vecchi goodies! There are several steps to this, but it really comes together fast...just look at the vivid and fun colors and so much texture! Enjoy!
I stamped Wendy's Paper Doll stamp from the Stamp It Stencil It set from Stamper's Anonymous, onto Tim's Heavystock with Jet Black Archival, and again on post it note to use as a mask.
I masked the Paper Doll and then spread a thin layer of Opaque Crackle Paste onto the tag and also on another card for the base.
Once dry, I added Transparent Gloss Paste through Wendy's Lots of Dots Stencil onto both the tag and card. You can never have too much texture.
While still keeping the mask on, I inked over the tag and card base using lots of Archival Inks, blending them into each other, and pushing the ink into the cracks.
Using Paradise Teal Archival and Wendy's Alphabets Stencil, I randomly inked in the smaller alphabet over portions of the tag and card.
Using Vibrant Fuchsia Archival, I stamped the Script Background Stamp over the tag and card.
I added Opaque Matte Paste through Tim's Mini Falling Stars Layering Stencil onto the tag and card, and then sprinkled Gold Embossing Powder onto the stars, and then heat embossed for even more texture.
I removed the mask, and wow it did such a good job, and then I laid the coordinating stencil on top of the doll and inked in the hat with Coffee Archival. I left the stencil on and stamped on top of it with Coffee using the Ticking Background Stamp for a texture look on the hat.
I positioned the stencil on again this time for the ribbon on the hat, and inked in with Paradise Teal. Then I inked in her face with Pale Ochre, her lips with Vibrant Fuschia, and her hair with Saffron all using the Detail Ink Blending Tool.
I laid the stencil on again for the ribbon on her hat (as well as her lips) and added Transparent Matte Paste for a little depth.
I stitched around the card and tag with white thread, and matted each onto more Heavystock, and a card base. Then I stenciled in the Cheers with Jet Black using Wendy's Occasion Sentiments, added the Crinkle Ribbon and Heirloom Rose, and then mounted the tag onto the card. Oh and I added dots of Glossy Accents onto her eyes.
