watercolour nebula

When pretty pink posh held the watercolour blog hop I had an idea of a card I wanted to make, but I'm not a great artist, and I didn't have the confidence to try :(

However, I thought a nebula is an abstract thing, I can't go too far wrong, so today I had a go, I got out some distress inks and gave it a go... and do you know what I love it, its a perfect backdrop to my alien, and it makes the perfect birthday card for an astronomer friend of mine :) awesome

I knew right from getting this adorable Paper Smooches Space Cadet stamp set that this is the card I wanted to make. It works out perfectly too, because the Paper Smooches Sparks challenge this week is 'Anything Goes!!!' so I'm going to enter my cute nebula into that!
