Reverse stamping

A friend has asked how I managed to reverse stamp the cats on my Kate's Kittens card, so I thought there may well be others who are unaware of the technique used.
There are two ways of doing this.
Method 1 uses the flat stamp in the Distressing essentials kit. First you ink up the cat stamp in Basic Black and stamp it onto the flat stamp - then quickly stamp the flat stamp onto your whisper white card and hey presto you have the mirror image of the cat stamp. For you techies out there - this is known as Lateral inversion! For the rest of us - its reverse stamping!
Method 2 uses a brayer. Again you ink up the cat stamp in Basic black and place on your workspace, roll the brayer over the inked up stamp, then quickly roll your brayer onto your whisper white card - hey presto - another mirror image.
Good innit!!
