I am an admitted Tim Holtz product coveter, so when I recently received a gift card for scrapbook.com, I ordered my markers right away. These are one of the best products I've bought in a long time. You can journal with them, of course, but you can also color different parts of a stamp with different colors of inks prior to stamping, and you can use them to watercolor any stamp. But my favorite use of them is to watercolor anything - ribbon, background, textured surfaces, etc. With one purchase, I now have almost every Tim Holtz color...something I have wanted for a very long time. Check out his video he used two different markers to make a striped Halloween ribbon. That was the video that pushed me over the edge. Thank you Tim Holtz for all of your amazing products and colors! Keep 'em coming!!!
