New Pencil/Cuttlebug Embossing Folder Technique

I went shopping at my local OfficeMax this past week and found Crayola Color Sticks. They are colored pencils without the wood and very thick. I bought them with the glimmer of an idea to use them with my Cuttlebug embossing folders.
Place your card stock in the folder and emboss. Open the folder, leaving the card stock on one side with the side you want to color on top. Gently rub the side of the colored pencil over the embossed image. (NOTE that you have the folder beneath to stabilize the image while coloring!)
You now have a great background. Below is the piece I cut that allowed me to use it for two cards.

 More cards are shown in my Flickr Photostream. 
Once I started I couldn't stop!
I hope you won't stop creating either!
