I dusted off some of my Copic markers when I saw the stamped images from Literature. I was really disappointed that many of them were dry and the tips just weren't as fine as I would like. So I bought some real cheap coloring pencils at Michaels and was pleasantly surprised.
I also came across these Nuvo Crystals Drops by Tonic which allows you to create your own colored bead drops. I use pearls, beads and jewels on most of my layouts and cards and found this to be a much cheaper way. They do take some drying time but well worth it.
