Am I the only person alive that can't get on with these things? I am getting so frustrated that they've actually stopped me from crafting...I'm soooo peed off with them.

I know it's not my colouring skills at fault and I am using the correct inkpads, but I just can't get a 'clean' image. Why? Well, it must be my cardstock and I've tried half a dozen different types. I am, as I feared, stuck with 200 concord index cards because the colour bleeds. So far, the only way I've got anything near a decent image is to stamp and colour on Letrasets bleed proof pads then stick that onto some white card, but it's not the way I want to do things really.

If anybody out there is having total success with no bleeding colours PLEASE let me know, 'cause I'm about to bin the dratted lot. UK supplier of card preferable. :o)

A couple of my friends have mentioned certain cardstock to me, but they're not getting 'perfect' results either, but there must be SOMETHING that works.

Have just come across your blog and your work is fab. Im still practising with promarkers but my mum is really quite good with them and she uses Bristol Board from Hobbycraft. An A4 pack of 20 sheets is £8.99 and she doesn't seem to have any problems with it. She uses a versafine black inkpad mostly and has also just bought a memento one. If you'd like to email me your address then I can send you a couple of images for you to try it
