This technique I figured out by accident - I love when that happens!
On a piece of card stock and a piece of vellum (about 5 1/4" x 3 1/2" each), stamp the image on the top center portion. Place the images side by side, facing the same direction. Using the Watercolor Wonder Crayons, color the vellum image boldly and the card stock image, in the same color but more lightly - more muted. Using a blender pen, blend the colors on the vellum so they are a soft watercolor-esque effect. On the card stock you may use blender pens OR aqua painters. *Do not 'over-saturate' as it may result in bubbles in your vellum. When both images are complete, turn the card stock upside down and flip the vellum over so it gives you the reflective image of the image on the card stock. The vellum over the card stock image, coupled with the lighter tones should give a softer 'reflective' effect. I hope this helps!
