Distress Ink Virgin!!!!

Hey there peeps
I just wanted to show this card i made using the CANDIBEAN Stamp 'Pennys Cheeky Kiss'
I have made this for 2 of my friends who are tying the knot, but what i wanted to show was my FIRST time using Distress inks!!!
Now i know its quite patchy and i notice and you can see mistakes but if i keep trying i may get better??? i just love the effect!
I will need new brushes as mine are from the £ store and are awful so i will have to go to the Art shop and get some 'proper' brushes. I have tried the water brushes ages ago but i didnt like them but maybe another try wont hurt.

Anyhow i hope you like it??
Have a great week
