The first one I tried was the Uniball Vision Elite, which is a micro gel pen at .5mm. I got an 8 pack of these at Staples with 8 different colors! So it is nice to know that there is a variety out there as far as colors go for the sketches. These pens are quite a bit bigger around then a gel pen, and fit nicely in the Chomas Creations adjustable marker holder. I set my pressure on 3, and my speed at 4. This was the new ladybug file from LD in the Cameo. The .5mm is quite a bit of a thinner line then the normal gel pen which is .7mm.
Then I tried one of the Chomas Creations glitter mini gel pens. These fit in the Chomas Creations adjustable pen holder. You still get quite a bit of detail with these pens, as long as you keep the image a good size. These gel pens are the typical .7mm sized.
Here are the cards side by side, with the Chomas Creations mini gel pen on the left and the Uniball pen on the right.
So YES! You can use other pens then the Sharpie Liquid Pencil!
