Sillhouete Challenges - Showcase #36

I received an Amazon gift card for Christmas and used it to buy some Silhouette Sketch Pens which I used to create this card. When you buy the pens you get a download card for I think it was 10 sketch pen images which are pre-chosen by Silhouette.

The umbrella was one of the free images. First I took out the Cameo blade and replaced it with one of the pens AND there is a setting in the software to tell it that you are using a pen instead of a blade. After drawing the umbrella I left the mat in the machine, took out the pen and replaced it with the blade and choosing the, "Cut Edge" option. It cut a bit more than I expected it to (it almost detached the center section of the umbrella) but I was able to work with it. I adhered the umbrella with foam pads.
Adding the sequins I ended up with an Arizona monsoon.
The sentiment is just one of the fonts on my computer. I used the same technique to first draw than cut the sentiment but the drawing part was cut by the blade but the letters were still useable so I used them.
This is the inside, printed on vellum. The flower was also one of the download images. I used the same font on the inside as I did on the outside.

Close ups of inside.


On the last one I had attempted to draw directly on the inside of the card. I didn't have the right colors for it to show up good enough that is why I went with the vellum instead.
