They do colour beautifully for ink pens and obviously a lot quicker as no phaffing with stumps and sansodor plus the pens themselves are very pretty (as far as pens can be!). However, I will resist for now as they are pricey and you would need quite a few shades of each colour to get the shading I'm used to with my Prismas. even if I got them from US as I'd want at least the 72 set to start it's a lot of money. Putting my sensible head on it's more a 'nice to have' then 'must have' and I'm doing o.k with my Prismas. One for my present list I think!

Fairy quick card
Hello again, I'm back. Didn't manage to get the new Dovecrafts paper not that I needed them but my Papermill shop didn't have them in yet. Usually they have them really early and when I'm not expecting them but the one time I am ?. . typical! Anyway, went to the art/craft shop instead (the only other crafty place in Liverpool centre that I know of) and got some stuff there instead. They had loads of lovely ribbons and gems look! Also, as I was at the till saw they had some copic markers reduced to £2 each (normal price £4.95!) so I got them just to see what they were like for myself as I've seen some wonderful cards using them and wanted to see what the difference was IRL compared to pencils and normal waterbased markers (these are alcohol based). I used them to make this quick card using my new bella stamp (It's not great as obviously only had the 3 colours to play with). Just added some stickles for extra sparkle.
