The bundle included the Metallic Silhouette Sketch Pens which I was excited about because I've honestly never used Silhouette's brand of sketch pens before. I always make my own sketch pens or use a regular ol' Bic with my Amy Chomas holder.
Anyway...I thought how perfect the white Silhouette Sketch Pen would be to make a chalkboard-style Christmas card. The pens fit in the holder perfectly so there's no messing around with a popsicle stick to make sure the pen doesn't drag across the page. That's a big plus for me!
I sketched on black construction paper with the white pen but when in dried, the white was very subtle and more like a gray which was not really the look I was going for.
(Note: I intentially did not edit this photo in any way so you could see the true colors.)
It would have been like totally awesome if the white was actually white. I am so bummed to say I'm disappointed in the lack of white-ness and brightness here. It may be merry, but it's not bright...(sorry, had to.)
