Handmade cards are hard to reproduced or duplicated....
Today's card is impossible to remake.
I used a "leftover piece" from this butterfly card

and then created this very card.

You see, after ink-spraying the stencil, I still had tons of ink left on the stencil!
 It would be a "waste" to rinse it all off the stencil.

Quickly, I found a piece of card stock or some sort. In front of me, there was a piece of vellum.
 I took the stencil and then pressed right against it and forgot about it for a while.

For the longest time, I didn't know what to do with the "reverse stencil print" (FYI: I made this term up). Then I got some hearts from another project's leftover. So... Ta-da!
 As for the hearts and sentiment, they are from the upcoming release! Here are your "sneak peeks"!

Thank you, Virginia, I learned what 'reverse stencil' means. Too often I don't understand a term and rarely get the needed info.
