More playing

I recently purchased a set of pen adapters for my Cricut so that could use pens other than the Cricut brand pens. The Cricut pens are a bit expensive at around $10 for a set of 5. There were 6 adapters in the pack. Of the 6 I have Bic Mark it, Sharpie ultra fine point and Crayola super tips. I decided to give them a try to see how well they worked.
The Sharpie ultra fine worked really well as did the Bic mark it. The Crayola super tip however didn't slide into the adapter enough and the tip of the marker couldn't touch the paper. When you're using the draw feature on the Cricut it will only draw the outline. It won't color things in. After the Cricut did it's thing I used markers to color it all in.
 
The wavy lines you're seeing on this is because after I got done coloring it I ran it through my paper crimper.

What a nifty crafty gadget that Cricut is, Ann. I'm glad you have to patience and where-with-all to figure out all the things it can do for you. I have no such patience with *anything* mechanical so I'd be a bad Cricut owner. *lol* But you do wonderful things with it! ~Andrea xoxoxo

Glad you found something else that works with the Cricut. That paper came out really cute.
