Young At Heart

My baby brother turns a significant 70 in two days and I thought this card would certainly suit the occasion . . .

Has anyone used Copics on watercolor paper before?  I hadn't, until this card.  After heat embossing the image, I went work with my Copics and didn't have a lick of trouble with color spreading beyond the image outlines.  A colorist I'm not, but the small amount of blending I wanted to do worked very well on this paper.  So I'll be using it again!
