I used the tim holtz distress markers to colour the stamped image and i have to say now that i have used the markers a few times, I am HOOKED!! love them.  I enjoy colouring and blending with both a water brush and a tombow blender pen, i find sometimes the water brush dilutes the colour just a bit too much and then i can use the blender pen when i just want to move the colour a bit, and the effects are awesome.
