So my Cameo has been drawing the Rustic Sketches with Make-the-Cut (see this post) but what about the Silhouette Studio Designer Edition? Can it do the same with SSDE? Some of you wanted to know and I was curious so I gave it a try. I imported the SVG into SSDE, loaded the cardstock into the cutter, hit "CUT", and held my breath.
The Cameo started moving and....
... can it be that it is actually sketching?
It is! IT IS SKETCHING!
Check out that wheelbarrow, bay-beeeee! Woo hoo!
The Rustic Sketches are SVGs so when using SSDE to draw them, treat them as you would any Lettering Delights SVG. In other words, before hitting the "Cut" button,
1. Import image onto the Virtual Mat
2: Right-click and UNGROUP.
3: Open Cut Style window and set the cut lines to "CUT"
Similar to my previous project, I used the Chomas Marker holder with a modified Sharpie Liquid Pencil to make this sketch. For the blade and speed settings, I selected what was preset for the Silhouette Sketch Pen, or Speed 10, Thickness 10.
It was interesting but I did notice that the Cameo made a couple of short pauses as it drew. That didn't affect the end result at all and the sketch looked as good as the one I made with Make-the-Cut.
So what do you think? Isn't it beautiful? Get your own Rustic Sketches now!
