Encouragement Card feat Studio Katia Japanese Peony

Hi everyone! It's Theme Week over at the Studio Katia blog, and for day 4 I am sharing an encouragement card featuring the beautiful Japanese Peony Clear Stamp Set.
To start off this card I stamped my images on some watercolor cardstock and heat embossed them with clear embossing powder. I then used my Distress Oxides to do some watercoloring:  I used Aged Mahogany and Tattered Rose for the petals, Squeezed Lemonade and Fossilized Amber for the inside of the flower, and Bundled Sage and Forest Moss for the leaves. Once I was done painting I die cut everything with the Japanese Peony Coordinating Dies.

I then created a window for my card base. For the window background I did some ink smooshing with Distress Oxides in Tattered Rose and Squeezed Lemonade on some watercolor cardstock.
For the window frame I cut some vanilla cardstock using the Dotted Patterns: Darling Ribbon Creative Dies in combination with the Dotted Patterns: Set 2 Creative Dies. The Dotted Patterns: Set 2 | Creative Dies cut both the window opening and a thin frame that I inked up with some Distress Oxide in Aged Mahogany.

I raised the window front over the background with some foam tape and coated it with acetate. I then heat embossed the sentiment on a strip of black cardstock andcut it with the Label Messages Coordinating Dies.  As a final step I added a few Crystal Clear Confetti on my card base and inside the window.
And that's it for today! I really hope you liked this card, and I hope I inspired you to create with the gorgeous Japanese Peony Clear Stamp Set. Thank you all so much for stopping by and have a great day!
