what do you use to journal on dark cardstock?

I have journaling pens but they are all in dark colors. I guess in all my years of scrapbooking I've never journaled or thought to journal straight on dark cardstock.

I have printed journaling on a lighter piece of cs and adhered it to the page.... but also wanted to use lighter pens or other ways.....

so what do you ladies do? Any clue where I can find scrapbooking safe journaling pens in lighter colors?

You can use a white scrapbooking pen. Not sure who makes it but Charys has one and I think Ash does also. Also I added a pic to your adhesive thread so you can see the miracle glue Smile

I pick a lighter color for the font Biggrin

Ok, I know, not fair ... but when I was paper scrapping, I had white gel pens I always used. HTH!

I have a white gel pen that came highly recommended by the Cricut messageboard members. I think it's a Uniball or something like that.
