I wouldnt worry too much about mud and tape. Fill it, let it dry, knock down the rough stuff, then blow your texture. Texture will hide any imperfections. It looks like you used 1/2" instead of 5/8. Might take a lot more texture to blend in. I just did this in my family room. Use warm water and a putty knife to scrape some of the texture off the old stuff to put in your corner metal. Blowing texture is easy. If you are going to use can texture I'd recommend the pro version
 You can get it at home crepo. The big can is about $15-19 and you'll need at least 5-6 cans. It's more expensive but much easier to control than the hopper and a compressor.

That is what drywall texture is for!
