Hey Guys,

Last night i did 2 colour swatches with my new Tim Holtz Distress Markers to see how they react when agitated with water in two types of card that i have, i aim to try them out on another type of card later, the first one is Bockingford Watercolour Card 300gsm, this one is textured but you can buy smooth, i only have the textured kind.

The next colour swatch was done on the underside of Centura Pearl Card 300gsm

Going off the results i got on these two swatches i am, so far, very happy with the markers strong pigmentation, and their qualities when water is added.  I have 160gsm card & 240gsm card to do a swatch on later today!  I will soon be doing a product review on these markers as to their use with rubber stamps and digi stamps, so if you want to see my findings please make sure you check back. If you are on FB i also link my blog posts to my FB account, so lookout on there too! Happy Crafting people, and see you soon!!! Hugs&Blessings, Vick xxx
