Question CP on black

I hadn't realized we have a coloured pencil forum now! I'm so excited!! (hop hop) I found out we have this forum AFTER I posted a question in "Drawing and Sketching." So, I'll repost here since it has to do with CP.

This is probably a silly and blatantly-uneducated question, but I admit I'm an art newbie. I finally got some black card paper and some brand new coloured pencils that are just itching to be used, but I want to make sure I use them wisely. Since it is a four hour drive for me to get replacement black card paper, I want to eliminate as many stupid mistakes as I can....before I even start.

So, here's my question. When I come to the part in my drawing that is black, do I let the paper show through to represent the black areas? Or, do you use the black coloured pencil so its shine blends with the shine of the other colors rather than have the flatness of the paper grain stick out? I.E. -- If I decide to do a snow leopard that has a little black on him, do I leave the paper untouched in those spots of his fur (kind of like leaving the white for the white in a watercolor painting)?

Wise artisans out there, I need some advise please.
