Thinking of You

Good evening.
It's time for a brand new challenge at ATSM, so here is my inspiration for you.

It was inspired by this photo.

I took the idea of the succulents in pots and the OL challenge over at Less is More and ran with it!
OL card always take a little planning but there's a great sense of achievement when they come off!
I started by stamping the bottom half of a vase from STAMPloration's Just Because, then added the succulents from another STAMPloration's set, Thankful and Blessed, masked off these and stamped Uniko's Background Block's Horizontal stripes. The sentiment came free with a mag a few months ago. OLcards are all in the planning! All the succulents and bowl were coloured with Copics.
OK, so what will you be influenced by, check out the rest of the DT for more inspiration, then why not join us?

I'm joining in over at:-


  1. What a fabulous one layer card Jules! I love the design and the bowl of succulents is lovely. Great masking too!

  2. Love this. And it's one layer! Was certain you'd used colored pencils. Such soft coloring with Copics... bravo. And I didn't even recognize the stamps as STAMP :o

  3. This is a fabulous card...very impressive masking!! Hope you have been enjoying sunny days, it's been glorious here today, dry and clear with a lovely breeze xx

  4. I love that stripes in grey Jules
    looks like a jalousie of the window and the pot is in front of it
    great scene Jul...
    great sentiment font too
    I love your CAS card

  5. Simply stunning Julie. Fabulous background for your pot full of fabulous colourful plants. Gorgeous card.

  6. Gorgeous colouring on those succulents Jules and the combination of colours is fab. A wonderful one layer card. Thank you so much for sharing this with us at Less is More xx

  7. This is gorgeous, Julie! Your colouring is so soft and pretty. The colour palette is wonderful for the subject of the card. The block background not only highlights the succulents beautifully, but gives nice depth to a OLC. Love this! Thank you for joining us at Less is More. x

  8. Wow, Julie ! Your card is so beautiful! Love this floral composition with its soft colors. Lovely paired with the stripped background which highlights perfectly the composition. Thanks so much for sharing and for playing along at Less is More.

  9. This card is fantastic, Julie! Those delicate colors and lovely succulents, very beautiful card!

  10. The colors are so soft and beautiful, Julie, and the masking is perfect. I would never have thought to add a stamped background like that but I really love the look.
