When purchasing stamps to add to my collection, I am usually drawn to packages that contain sets–preferably images with corresponding sentiment options. Every once in awhile though, there is that one single stamp that catches my eye. Usually, it’s an intricate design or bold statement stamp that makes me want to take another look and consider a purchase. I do like to make sure I have more than one idea for how to use it so I get the most for my purchase. For today’s project, I chose a large red rubber stamp and brainstormed some ideas on how use it multiple ways.
This is the Flower Mandala Stamp from Ken Oliver. It’s a bit larger than the front of a standard A2 size card, but there are many options for it’s use.
