I often stamp on patterned paper or coloured paper. When I colour I use copics, which I muchly. I think people also like le plume markers. I have heard good things about Martha stewart markers. You can use a coupon for those at M's.
For inks I tend to grab Tsukienko if I am goingt o use my copics.

I love Glimmer Mist. I just started with the pearl, gold and silver. I just spritz a little on anything that needs a little shiny.
