365 Cards and Friday Sketchers

Well it is Day 27 on 365 Cards and today the theme is 'Touchy, Feely Friday'

This one is all about texture. Try to incorporate 3 different methods of adding texture to the paper on your card. This can be done using wet and/or dry embossing, distressing, or anything else you can think of.
I also wanted to use this sketch from the Friday Sketchers #45 Challenge
It isn't an exact copy of the sketch but my take on it
This is what I came up with

My 3 types of distressing are the torn and inked edge to the Fawn card, the white card has been embossed using my Swiss dots folder which was inked in Dark Blue first then I hole punched some of the dots out with my cropodile to mimic the water. I also have a layer of inked sand paper along the bottom to mimic the sea bed.
Hopefully you will see it all better in this picture.

Hope you like it
This is my 99th post on this blog and hopefully my 100th one will be to say my Grandson has finally made an apearance since he was due on the 16th March, fingers crossed!!
