The Less is More challenge is 5 years old! Where does the time go - I've been playing along for all that time, although in recent years not every week.I've been a winner and showcased a few times which I take as a very high accolade indeed. Congratulations ladies and here's to the next 5 years.
The LIM challenge is white on white and the die I have used is one that Anne from LIM used a while ago, and as soon as I saw it I knew I had to have it as it is very close to my favourite designer rose by Charles Rennie Mackintosh.
It's been sitting on my desk and not quite made it to a card, so this was the week for it. I've used Tattered lace pierced squares for the bases and embossed in silver the sentiment.
As I have a box of white snippets and all these pieces came from it I am off to show everyone in the snippets playground. But before I do......
A few weeks ago I was very lucky to be able to go to a workshop sponsored by Boots No7. Boots is a Nottingham firm although now has US owners and there was also an exhibition all about the brand which was fascinating. At the workshop we got all the materials to make a little purse and try out some techniques. I chose to use some vintage Boots branding and a transfer method onto aida cloth.
Afternoon tea was provided and at the end of the workshop we all got a very generous Boots No7 goody bag which I was not expecting. A fab workshop all together.
Here's a photo of how the tables were set up with all the materials on cake stands.
