Has anyone noticed their Brushed Corduroy distress marker is more "Green" than brown?? I guess I have not used it since I purchased it last spring. I went to use it before Christmas for coloring an image and noticed it was really green?? So I did a comparison with my distress ink pad and it is not the same color at all, it really is more like shabby shutters than brushed corduroy. I contacted Ranger and forwarded them the photo of my comparison and they were really nice to send me another marker, it arrived today and it's exactly the same color..."Green"
I was just wondering if anyone else has noticed this with their markers that some of the colors are not exact matches to the distress ink pads?

Oh wow! You're right!
I use my distress markers all of the time, but I guess I hadn't reached for that one yet. It DOES have a definite greenish cast to it.
The ones I have used do seem to match the ink pads fairly closely. So this one is different. I might have to check a few others.

All others are fine, fired brick comes out more rust but this has also been noticed by others. Ordering a new marker will probably just have the same result: getting another green one

I think I heard on a video somewhere that the markers weren't the exact same as the inks purposely. They were designed to be a bit different but complement the original colours
I could be remembering wrong, I think it was in a CHA video when they were first released
