I use Tombow and love them! Like has already been mentioned above you can color from lightest to darkest to get the depth of color you want. They can be blended with the colorless blender that comes with each set (and is sold separately) or can be watercolored traditionally with water and brush.

You can also color on a rubber stamp the areas that you want specific colors on and "huff" on the stamp to remoisten the ink and then stamp.

You can color with direct to paper (color on paper and then blend) or indirect (where you color on a CD or other plastic item and pick the color up with the blender pen or watercolor brush, for a lighter look.)

I have not used the Distress Pens, so cannot answer any questions about them.
