Hello my card making and papercrafting friends, Tracy McLennon here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog coloring on black cardstock to create a STUNNING effect. To Create this cards I used Chameleon Color Tone Pencils
Chameleon Color Tones Pencils are specially designed double ended pencils you just flip to blend! These unique artist quality pencils take the guesswork out of choosing different colors for blending and shading and they eliminate the hassle of sifting through dozens of colored pencils to find the right shades, as the right shade is on the other end and all you have to do is flip to blend!
- 25 Pencils / 50 colors
- Artist Quality Made In Austria
- Highly Pigmented Intense Colors
- Ultra Smooth Consistency
- Break Resistant 3.8mm lead
Chameleon Color Tones Pencils are a wonderfully convenient system that allows you to do MORE with less! Each pencil has two colors that have been custom matched to deliver captivating color blends and transitions. The 25 pencils create 50 vibrant colors, and each pencil is finely crafted in Austria to provide richly pigmented, intense color and a buttery smooth consistency. The pencils are designed to layer and blend exceptionally well and feature break-free 3.8mm leads that come pre-sharpened for ease of use.
The best part is that Chameleon Color Tones Pencils are packed in a convenient storage case that transitions into a brilliant workstation for creativity on the go!

Card Making Tip #1:
I love the clean look of the white embossing powder on the black cardstock. I created borders of the same image around the black cardstock. I adhered the black cardstock to the white card bases using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam Squares for added dimension.Card Making Tip #2:
For one of the cards I simply added shading with 1 Chameleon Coloured Pencil, and that was white. A simple white sentiment using stickers, makes this card eye catching and simple to create.
Card Making Tip #3:
I tested lots of the Chameleon Coloured Pencils to see which stood out on black cardstock and which did not. Then added colour inside the white embossed images. I then added the handwritten sentiment also using Chameleon Color Tone pencils.
Have a wonderful day everyone!
