Something old or something new

It's time for the first challenge of 2019 at Try It On Tuesday and this time the challenge is to use something new or something you haven't used for a while.
For my card I have used Penny Black Dreamy stamp, although it is an old PB stamp it is one I have wanted for ages and I was so happy to receive it at Christmas ,along with lots of other goodies ,from my lovely sister . I have also used the Bokah technique on my background which is also an old technique but it is the first time I've done it. I took the inspiration from Viv's blog, thanks Viv !
So my "New" is the stamp and the technique.


  1. Beautiful colours for beautiful images, Joan - it's great when you get your hands on a stamp you've lusted after for a while, isn't it? Bokeh is on my list for this week, too - I really must perfect it. You did a great job.

  10. This is so pretty - the gentle swirling blues and greens are the perfect setting for those floaty flower stems.
