Stamp Something ,,,,, Funky !! :-)

Hi all :-) Hope you are all well and planning a fab n fun weekend ahead :-)
It's Friday and time for another theme on the Stamp Something Challenge ,,, this time we would like you to

Stamp Something ,,,,, FUNKY


We are sponsored by Funky Kits ,, so one lucky entrant will win a fab stamp !! :-)


I always think of Funky as being bright colours with a retro feel ,,,, a flowery hippy van in the background would have been perfect but I don't have one,, I should have looked for one !!! Anyway ,,, it was my nephew's 11 birthday on Wednesday so I made this card for him, hope he likes it ! :-)
I followed Jackie's fab sketch on the Sketch and Stash Challenge, I coloured the image with Copics and inked around the edges with Spiced Marmalade distress ink . The papers from 3 Bugs in a Rug and I sewed the edges on my machine . The sentiment is from a hero Arts ticket set and I added a ribbon slider, some orange ribbon and a music note eyelet to finish :-)



Challenges :

Sketch and Stash ,,,,, Sketch ,,, I have had the stamp for eons and the paper is new
Cards for Men ,,,, Recipe ,,, 1 image, 2 papers, 3 embellies ( ribbon, slider, eyelet)
