Absolutely! Gina K's pure lux baseweight is my preferred cardstock of choice for pencil/gamsol. Although, in my case, I use baby oil.
It's super smooth and the color just seems to float when I blend. Awesome stuff. I'm getting ready to order up some of the Vanilla for when I do vintage stuff.
Karen - For ink, I agree with Kitty14. Memento Tuxedo black all the way. Actually, I've also used their brown to color an image in sepia tones like a vintage photograph. It worked just as fabulously as the black. So you don't have to use just black when you're coloring!
When I'm doing up digital images, I print with a laser printer. No bleeding there. Laser prints melt the toner into the paper as part of the printing process.
