Yesterday I reviewed the cutting machine Cameo by Silhouette America. Today I’m reviewing their sketch pens. You can find my review for the Cameo here.
Silhouette America offers different items to get the most of out of your machine. One of those items are sketch pens. I received 2 different sets of pens to review. One of them is the glitter sketch pen pack, the other is the metallic sketch pen pack. Each pack retails $6.99.
Silhouette sketch pens are specially designed to fit into the blade holder of any Silhouette electronic cutting tool. Use the sketch pens to draw elaborate designs or to add a hand-drawn look to your projects.
Discover a variety of new crafting possibilities with your Silhouette electronic cutter and sketch pens! These pens fit directly into the blade holder of your Silhouette making it easy to transform any digital design into a work of art. Look for special sketch designs in the Silhouette Online Store designed specifically for use with sketch pens.
I was excited to get to review these sketch pens. Sometimes in paper crafting there are designs that are very detailed and delicate. When you cut those type of files, they rip easily and are hard to glue down to your project. The sketch pens are a great alternative. Instead of cutting your design, you sketch it. The sketch pens are also a great way to add a unique design to your project.
I used the sketch pens to sketch two different designs. For the metallic pens, I used a double connected heart file. For the glitter pens, I used a tag.
I love the look of the end result with the sketch pens. I can see myself using them a lot for my scrapbooking projects. I think a great idea for the sketch pens would be to use them with a font. You can create great unique titles for scrapbook pages. You can even use them for journaling with a very delicate cursive font.
