I've been waiting and waiting for my new Ranger Distress Markers to arrive, and they came yesterday. I haven't had a chance to play with them yet, but I did go find the video that got me excited int he first place. It is Tim Holtz at CHA if you want to check it out. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SYAPWcZ3WSQ

I'll come back with a full report and sample hopefully soon. Stay tuned!

I haven't had a chance to actually make a card or anything, but I did get to play just a bit. You really can ink up a stamp without the colors muddying. That is huge! And you don't have to work light to dark even. They are pretty cool.

Glad to hear you got them and they're worth waiting for. The first production wasn't enough to fill all the orders from CHA and they said we'd get them midMarch... that came and went and then we were told the second production all had defective caps and the order has to be re-done... then we only got 25 percent of what we ordered and they said mid-April for more and now I see tonight it says late April... arrrggh!

My LSS got hers in but the "L" now stands for "lovely" because its an hour away so not so "local" :) I am guessing this is something else I will 'need" soon.

Where did you buy your markers from? How much did you pay?
I am looking into buying the set but I'd like to know the best price out there...
Thanks...

Viva Las Vegastamps! sells the complete set of 37 in the case for $89.60 but you have to be patient and wait until the stock comes in... so far, we've only received 25% of what we ordered and late April is the projected date of our next allotment and I don't know how many we'll get. Can you believe that Copic Markers have doubled in price? I was shocked.

Looks like Stampo has a better deal. You will have to wait wherever you order from because these babies are hot!

No, they aren't alcohol, they are water based. They have the same properties as the Ranger Distress ink pad line. I'm not sure what the ingredients are, but they are pretty cool. Take a look at the video of Tim Holtz demonstrating them at CHA in this thread. So far what I like about them is that you can layer up your color right on the stamp and the color doesn't muddy. I need more play time, but so far I'm impressed.

Sounds like something I might need to put on my "Wish List". Can't wait to see some of your beautiful work.

Glad you got them so fast... it surprised us that we were able to get a shipment in when they're still saying late April but we still have some sets left.
