AWESOME effect achieved with this pen!

Ok, so for those of you who don't know what these pens are, I can tell you that sakura gelly roll is a line of gel pens that can achieve some unique effects that you can't achieve with normal gel pens. For this very reason, sakura gelly rolls are often used for crafting, scrapbooking, or just writing cute letters to your friends.

Now, the silver shadow pens, as you may have seen in the pictures provided by that when your write letters, allow you to get this silver lettering with a colored border. When you first write with the pen, the ink will show up first as the normal color, then the silver ink will show up on top of the colored to achieve the aforementioned effect - whether this is because the colored ink sinks or the silver ink rises, I can't say for sure. It might take a while, but the silver ink will definitely show up to complete the final look: awesome silvery lettering with thin colored borders.

I've tried the sakura gelly silver shadow 0.7 in both blue and purple now, and I think the blue was the better choice. This may be totally up to discrepancies in manufacturing or maybe even the properties of the ink itself, but I've found that my blue pen does a way better job of preserving the blue outline around the silver shadow than the purple. With the purple, I find that the silver often overshadows the purple outline (no pun intended) and the letters that I've written turn out to be completely silver with just the tiniest remnants of the purple outline.
However, conversely, with the blue pen, I've found the ink to bleed through paper way more severely than with the purple pen. Of course, since this pen is often used on thicker papers (e.g. scrapbooking) this might not matter to you, but if you plan on writing cute letters to your friends, either get thicker paper or a different pen if you mind the bleeding.
