Anything Goes "Get better warp speed"

Hi Everyone
Hope everyone is having a great summer.  We have been having tons of fun.  I made the card the for Paper Smooches Challenge this week.

I started with the background I took distress paint in the colors seedless preserves, black soot, mustard seed, broken china, and picket fence.  I put them on a craft mat and added a little water, then I smooshed my watercolor paper into the paints.  I did it in multiple layers to make it look like a galaxy.  
I did the same thing with the planets just eliminating the black and white.  I then embossed the sentiment from the Paper Smooches Space Cadet stamp set with VersaMark and white embossing powder.  I also stamped the cute little alien and colored him with the distress pains and a little water.  I mixed the broken china and mustard seed to make the alien green.  I added liquid glass on top of the alien to make it look like glass of him.  All the products I used are listed below.  Thanks for checking out my card.
