Mickey birthday

One of my coworkers likes Disney, so when I needed to make a birthday card for her, I knew I wanted to use this embossing folder.  I went with Mickey colored cardstock and kept it simple because the image was so large that it was hard to do much else.  It's a little easier to see in person; my photograph washes it out almost entirely. 


Has anyone had any luck coloring this type of embossed image?  I tried a few times (using markers) and the ink bled terribly since the paper fibers were compromised from the embossing. I've since given up, but I would like to know if there's an easy way to color these in. 

Have a lovely day!
