Mermaid from Outer Space Card

Hello all!  Today I'm here to share a card for the latest Corrosive Challenge blog: Anything Goes.
I'm featuring a stamp by Oddball Art titled Mermaids from Outer Space.  I actually tried to make the entire background, using distress inks.  I've used inks before, but I also put in stars and for me, to freehand anything is a really big deal.  Plus, I did a bit of heat embossing but I obviously chose the wrong color.
I should have maybe went with a white, or....I don't know, but I think the gold sentiment is hard to see.  The sentiment is from Stampin Up's Trendy Trees.  Either way, I was trying to be a little more adventurous using seldom used inks.

That's it from me today.  Thank you for taking a look and have a wonderful day.  Please join in this month at Corrosive Challenge if you get a chance.

This meets the following challenges:  Digi Choosday: Anything GoesThrough the Craft Room Door: Anything Goes, Get Creative: Fantasy, and A Bit More Time to Craft: Anything Goes.

Lola, your card is adorable. Just love the way that the background came out and such bright colors.
Happy Birthday! I posted on the DT blog for you, but I cannot get any photos to load and I'm so sorry about that. Blogger has been acting up and I'm so frustrated. Enjoy your day and many more birthdays to come!!!
