Note:

I now wish I had posted this sooner to remind myself whether this is from watercolors (some of which contain sparkly flakes) or extracted ink from water soluble markers. There may or may not be a golden confetti treasure inside as well. The effect was remarkable, showing green and/or red when rotated and viewed with the sun located behind it. Any comments as to the reasons behind this effect would be greatly appreciated!
