Make it Monday #45 Coloring embossed images with Copics

This is a quick post to enter Make It Monday's challenge. This week Lisa Johnson has created a pretty card using white powder embossing on a beautiful stamp image and coloring it with Copics.

Check the video here: http://nicholeheady.typepad.com/capture_the_moment/2011/12/-make-it-monday-45-coloring-embossed-images-with-copics-1.html

Of course, I am late mailing this card, so it had to be done quickly. I like this technique and will try it again (maybe even in time for another post to MIM before the deadline :)
