I have so many people asking why both a pen and marker holder? After asking people if they would want one of both, for the reasons shown, we all decided on both, as people did want both options! But keep in mind you can always just use the marker holder for holding pens to, you just won't be able to center them like you see below.
This cute bear shape from Lettering Delights has a ring around it as the bonus layer. I used the Chomas Creations adjustable pen holder with a Sakura Souffle gel pen to draw the ring. The Souffle pens dry puffy, I just love them! Of course this means you should let them have extra dry time before you touch them or they will smear!
Now I'm often asked what the difference between the Chomas Creations adjustable pen holder and adjustable marker holder. The biggest difference of course is the size. The adjustable pen holder holds pens up to 3/8 inch while the adjustable marker holder goes up to 1/2 inch. The biggest problem with putting a gel pen in the adjustable marker holder is how far off center the gel pen will end up.
Now, if you were to draw with the gel pen in the adjustable marker holder it is going to be way off center. If you try to cut a design like I showed above it will end up drawing the ring outside of the design.
Notice how the gel pen is centered inside of the adjustable pen holder.
When you draw and cut with the gel pen inside the adjustable pen holder your ring will be centered inside your design!
I also used the Chomas Creations adjustable marker holder with a Prismacolor Permier to draw the font around my design. This is the Lettering Delights thin font called Typewriter.
