Crafty Calendar Challenge Card - Boys will be Boys

Good morning all.  I haven't posted for a couple of weeks due to being away on holiday.  A weeks rest in sunny Spain is exactly what I needed.

Today is the first Saturday in June so we have a new challenge over at Crafty Calendar.   The theme this month is
'Boys will be Boys'.

My card for this challenge is a little bit "out there" maybe not the traditional boys/mans card.... 

For my card I have used:-

Captain Gneng digi stamp from Dr Digi's House of Stamps coloured with copics.
The spaceship is a stamp from the My Favorite Things Out Of This World stamp set and the planet is from My Favorite Things Space Explorer Stamp set both coloured with copics. 

The greeting is a combination of two stamps from the My Favorite Things Out Of This World stamp set stamped with versamark and heat embossed with WOW white embossing powder. 
The large planet is a clipart image, printed and then cut.

The background is created by blending distress inks Black Soot, Faded Jeans, Dusty Concord and Spiced Marmalade.  I then spritzed this with water, dried with my hot air gun and then flicked white acrylic paint over it.

I love how the background turned out.....everyone is now going to be having space themed cards......

I also added some white Dovecraft 3D Liquid Enamel Effects and a couple of punched white stars.

We are sponsored for this challenge by
