I love this cute 'Dunno duck' from High hopes he just makes me smile and when I found this die background (although I just bought it as I thought it was fun and hadn't any idea how I would use it) and rediscovered this little fella I knew they just had to get together. I first cut the die out and embossed it on white card , I love how the embossing gives the detail on the raindrop tracks. I then stamped my duck so he appeared to be sitting in the puddles and coloured him with promarkers.
I used some blue metallic pattered card to back the die cut extending the length to form a square and making the water appear shallow like a huge puddle. It also coloured the splashes and the rain drops.
It does look a little odd if you look closely as the perspective is obviously wrong as the duck is a layer above the blue but from any kinda distance it gives the appearance of a duck having a splash in a puddle during a rain shower.
I think it would be the perfect card to make someone smile be it as a get well, just because or even a birthday like a milestone that we are all suppose to dread reaching lol.
I would like to enter this card in to the following challenges:-
Passion for promarkers -add texture
shopping our stash - duck,duck,goose
the paper girls - splish splosh
IDIC - square cards
get creative challenges - stitching
(I think my rain trails look like stitching)
