Recently purchased Tim Holtz distressed markers on eBay. While I did save money on them. I had the worst experience with this ebay seller and I'm still talking to them about a dried market and one with frayed tip. Seller insist that it must be lay on its side for 24-72 hours. I'll try that but just wanted to note that the package does not note this. As for the frayed tip. It's definitely a defect. Which is fine it bugs me that seller made excuses for it instead of just replacing it.
All other markers were fine and I had a blast playing with them. I loved the way it looked. I made two mini card with scraps and one shaker card.
