    Can they be drawn on colored paper?

    I saw from your directions that the background needs to be filled in. Can you show an example of how that would be done with ball point pen? I’m thinking of trying these but want to make sure I understand. Thanks.

    It can be anything in the background as long as it's not completely white. Example would be your display picture with the checkered background.

    Here are my first two cards. I'm new to the ballpoint pen medium. The pens I picked out got some little ink blobs. I am going to experiment with more pens that write smoothly.

    Those look great! I think I got the idea. Let me try a couple and I’ll be back if they work.

    I'm probably in, but I need to make cards before I commit. I love, love, love working with ballpoint pen.
