Daily Paper Prompt #21: Stamp a Mandala

3x5" index cards, number stamps

Create a mandala using only alphabet, number or hand-carved eraser stamps.

A mandala can be made with any small stamps. Flowers, dots, stripes, stars, hearts, arrows, alphabet stamps, number stamps, symbols, circles. Try to look at the stamps as shapes, and how those particular shapes can add to your mandala. Are they linear? Round? Curved? Like the "7" stamp - really two lines at an angle, right? If you don't have any alpha/number stamps, you can do this by repeating letters and numbers with a marker, as if they were stamped.

I have paint-on-the-brain today. I did 2 mandalas with stamps and hadn't been into Flickr for a bit so I couldn't figure how to load them both. Still NOT entirely sure I did it right, but oh well, Life is a learning experience extraordinaire!!

I have so few stamps. But, I do have a kitty & a flower stamp that came in handy for this prompt.
