Make a Wish, 7 Kids College Fund

Hello everyone!!   I am here to share my very first project as a part of the 7 Kids College Fund design team.  I love the stamps designed by Mo Manning for Penny Black and chose to use the Make a Wish stamp for my first project.

skin: E04 E11 E21 E00 E000 R20 R11 hair: E57 E55 E53 E51 red: R39 R37 R35 R32 R30 white: C3 C1 Blender blue: BG75 BG57 BG53 background: BG99 White Wink of Stella

I've colored her with Copic markers and the shadowing or background is done with Copics as well but applied with a Tim Holtz water brush filled with 70% alcohol.   My sweet friend Jennifer Dove has opened my eyes to some new fun ways to use my markers.  If you would like to check out the tutorial I learned this technique from you can find it on Jennifer's blog HERE.  The papers I've used are the 6x6 paper pad Yesterday by Carta Bella.

Here is a list of supplies I've used from the 7 Kids shop:

Thanks so much for stopping by the blog today.  I hope you feel inpsired to get crafty!
Head over to the 7 Kids College Fund shop for these supplies and more!


  1. Lizzy, how do you do the little puddles of white drops in the background? They are mixed in with the little rhinestone or glitter dots - or what I see them as. But I'm looking for somethiing to make those white dots and keep them firm rather than flatten out like paint.

  2. Gorgeous card! Like Linda W, I, too would like to know how to make those white dots that stay 3-dimensional. They are like paint spatters but thicker than paint. Thank you!

  3. Hi Linda and Nancy! Thank you for stopping by! That is done with Frantage, it is a chunky embossing powder, this one from Stampendous and is the Shabby White color. It comes in other colors, 7 Kids has some on sale now. You sprinkle it onto your project without any adhesive or ink, heat it from beneath- or it will blow away lol, the longer you heat it the more it will flatten out but will stay more raised than paint of ink would either way.

    1. Thx Lizzy - so you mean we don't need Versamark = we just sprinkle the powder where we want and heat from beneath? How weird. I'm going to get some tho!

    2. Thank you for answering our question, Lizzy. I've never heard of such a product but I'm anxious to try it! It adds a great touch!


Thanks so much for taking the time to leave me a message! I love hearing from you. Happy Crafting!!
