It's Raining Men

I have based this weeks challenge piece around the theme of that well known 80's classic 
'It's Raining Men'
The 'men' are stamped onto shrink plastic, which I coloured with blue pencil, then cut into raindrop shapes prior to heating with my heat gun to shrink them.
I stamped 'Relaxin' onto watercolour card, then masked it off with masking fluid, which I also splattered onto the background and used for the puddle.
I used distress oxides for the background with lots of water, to create dribble effects.
I used a raindrop stamp (Designs By Ryn) to complete the background and blended each one with a little water.
I then unmasked my image and painted it using hickory smoke distress ink. 
Finally I added a few shadows and lines with a black fine-liner, stuck on my 'mendrops' and added my sentiment.
