These puddle ducks are an add-on set to the new February Hero Arts My Monthly Hero and totally remind me of the characters from children’s books! Today’s post is part of a blog hop to celebrate the kit release (more details below), but for now lets take a closer look at the kit and the add-ons. I’ve linked all supplies at the end of this post.

On a piece of watercolor card I stamped the bear, mama duck and ducklings from Fun In The Rain in Versafine Onyx Black and watercolored before die cutting with the matching dies. I put these to one side while I worked on another piece of watercolor card for the background. I stamped the puddles and rain drops in clear embossing ink and then white heat embossed before loosely watercoloring a splotchy ground and background. I splattered paint and perfect pearls solution too and then when dry I stamped the sentiment in Versafine Onyx Black. I partially die cut the top of the panel with a Nesting Clouds infinity die.

I foam mounted the background and critters on to a Desert Storm card base and then accented the rain drops with a couple of Nesting Clouds cut from vellum and a sprinkling of sequins.
