Technique Pointer: Be sure your image is totally embossed so you can color on top of it. I love the leaves and the flower is much richer in real life. Let your layers dry some before going on, but you'll still be moving paint around because there is nowhere the paint is going to soak in on an embossed image.
Try embossing black paper with white embossing powder. I think this was that wonderful Hero Arts Unicorn pigment ink.
