This month we are going to talk about pens. Distress markers in particular but we may throw the odd mention the way of copics, gel pens, zigs etc too..

I happen to know that a new order of Distress Markers came in this week. Here is a little sneak peak before they were put in an orderly manner up onto the shelf:



I LOVE these pens for journaling, outlining, doodling etc etc. They obviously match perfectly to the distress inks and stains and are so versatile. I also find the brush end perfect for inking those hard to reach parts of letters, banners etc.

I think I have some pens similar to this that I got from SU a while back? Brush end and a pen end - I do agree the brush end is good for fiddly edge inking, I got slightly different shades to the inks I bought though so I have to use one or the other, guess I wasn't thinking it through when I bought them, I was thinking about getting variety instead.

There seems to be some nice colours in those pens. Shame no one took my gift request seriously when I said I could use scrapbooking supplies to scrap the baby therefore it would be an appropriate shower present! Wink My wish list for the new year is getting out of control and I am trying not to spend! Sad

Marj copics markers are a spirit based marker so they are water proof when dry. They are great for colouring, blending and colouring other objects including metal, bling, stickers, fabric etc. you can't use these markers with staton ink as they cause the staton to run.
distress markers are water based so they are not water proof when dry and like all the distress products they react with water so you can sprinkle.water on them and get a mottled effect. They also have a nice, tough plastic nib for writing with, they match the distress inks - I used to always use black or brown for journaling and doodling before I got these as I didn't like the fact that a colour wouldn't match the inking exactly. You can also stamp with these and get cool water mark effects.

I have a goodly collection now, and love them. I just needed the blue shades of Tumbled Glass and Broken China, which I now have. No, I don't have all of them, but enough to make do. They made up a large portion of my Christmas present from Sue-Maree. Smile I am learning to reach for them more and more. I really want to perfect the different techniques such as colouring and stamping with them.

Thanks for the info Lorraine. I got some Copic markers for Christmas but haven't used them yet. Think I might need to get some Distress Markers.
