This is a CASE of trudee's beautiful vellum tuck-in card: http://tinyurl.com/poub6 Thanks for the wonderful design, trudee! The Lilacs are done with the Expressionistic Watercolor technique (Technique Junkies Newsletter, Dec/Jan 2005) on Shimmery White using the SU! markers to color the image, with the additional step of over-embossing the images with detail clear EP to make the images pop even more. This also enables you to add more color to the image. The words "Spring Joy" are computer generated onto a window sheet using my inkjet printer and the mirror image setting, then transferred onto the paper by rubbing with a popsicle stick.

Having seen this card in person, the scan doesn't do justice for it. The lilacs just POP and have so much depth to them,even more depth than you can see here if you can imagine that! The whole card is really gorgeous! Trudee, your original is also gorgeous.

Still looking for the pony.
