Default Tombows or stampin up markers

I have just bought some tombows. Do I use regular CS with these markers ? I understand that I use ONLY watercolor CD when watercoloring. I don't particularly want to watercolor right away.

Thank you.

I don't have the tombow markers, but in your subject line you also mention SU markers. If the tombow are the same as SU then they will work best on a smoother white paper. If used on general cardstock then it may cause pilling depending on how heavy-handed you are with the marker and the quality of the cardstock. I use SU markers on SU whisper white.

I can color directly on the whisper white paper. I can color on a stamp and then huff and stamp. It's really pretty when you color the stamp with a marker, give the stamp a light mist and then stamp on watercolor paper. This also works when coloring the stamp with watercolor crayons and then misting and stamping.

Have fun with your new markers!
