Sketchy Doodle Flowers - Owl - By Florence

Morning everyone

I hope you are all enjoying the weekend.

Today I would like to share a project I made using the new Sketchy Doodle Flower Rubber Stamps.

This project has a hint of recycling to it so you can imagine how much fun I had making it.


It'll owl be right on the night!




The Base

For the base of this project I used an old LP which I sanded down one side with sand paper and gave the vinyl two coats of Gesso.
*I then applied some paint all over the surface of the LP using the black side of a piece of Cut'n'Dry.
When the paint was dry a gave it a couple of quick spritzes of Spray Ink and let the excess ink run down the surface a little.
To make the circle patterns, I used plastic container tops, dipped into paint and stamped them onto the base as seen.
I gave the surface a quick spray of a fixative to fix the inks.
*An alternative base idea would be to paint and decorate a piece of card and then attach it to the LP using glue.

 The Owl

I colored some white card (cut to approximate sizes to match images) with Distress Ink and stamped all of my images using Black Archival Ink.
I then cut all of the pieces out, added a little bit of Distress Ink to the edges of each piece and gave them a coat of Mod Podge.
I used Silicon to attach my pieces, firstly to the LP and then to build up the layers as seen.

Thank you for looking
Happy Stamping

  4. I can see you had great fun with this. The plastic container lid stamping is so effective the way you've echoed the flower centre eyes & I particularly like the feathery effect of using the large spiky image beneath the flowers for the eyes. The his (perhaps it's a she??) beak curves the opposite way to the feathers adds a super contrast as does it being the complimentary colour of the same feathers. Fascinating to see all the little details in this making a very striking design.

  5. How inventive! I have a whole mess of old LP's and singles here if only I can bring myself to repurpose them - guess I think that maybe sometime I'll listen to them again!!! Yeah, right eh? This is certainly tempting me to go use them.

  12. What a clever and fun project Florence and I love the use of an LP as the base and the way you have picked out the different pieces to layer up to achieve a very good owl shape and look. I love the colours too. x
