Backgrounds using Distress Ink

O'k so I admit it, I cannot get the hang of brayer backgrounds.  I blame the brayer I have as it's probably not the best one on the market (a poor workman always blames her  So today I tried to get the effect by using foam instead and I am pleased with the results.  I recommend using glossy card though as it helps the ink to move round better, I also used a wet wipe to smudge with which worked very well.

Let me know what you think
