Bright colours

Haven't been around my blog much recently as I seem to have had one thing after another, first started with shingles, then a bit of a flare up with my rheumatoid arthritis and now I seem to have done something to my ankle, thing I've pulled a tendon or something, all I know is it hurts !  Anyhow this afternoon I got out the brushos and a new stamp from Honeydoo and had a play, Brusho background and everything else painted with the same brusho colours, I wasn't sure about it while I was making it as I thought maybe the colours were too bright but by the time I finished it I was happy with it. Going to put it in these challenges

  7. Oh Joan, it does sound like you've been going through the mill, poor you. I'm sorry to hear that things have been tough for you and I hope that you'll be well again soon. I love this card, it's so bright and cheerful. The Honeydoo stamps are fabulous and just perfect for colouring. Love the addition of the butterflies too which add some dimension and are great contrast to the yellow. Take care of yourself Joan x
