Beautiful card. Thanks for the video and tips.


This is awesome Nichol, never thought that the colour would pop up so much on black cardstock. Thanks for the idea!

I saw your card over at Honey Bee’s blog and said it was absolutely beautiful! The black base gives so much depth and intensity to your coloring !

Hi Nichol,

Have found this blog post on a later email, sorry I told you that I had a lot of emails to catch up with.
This is a fantastic card, I love the use of the black card stock, white embossing powder and coloured
pencils. It all goes together beautifully. :o)

I love how this card turned out! I'm going to try using my colored pencils on black card stock now. The white embossing really makes everything pop! Thanks for the tutorial!
