CCC- Distress Crackle

I suppose its about time to post my CCC piece. The Lovey Linda from Studio L 3 has chosen Distress Crackle for the flavor of the week.  I did a coaster with this mermaid image and some German scrap from Alpha Stamps. I have to confess I did this for a swap but a perfect way to combine the two.

Whatever you are using for your crackle makes the blue look like ripples in water. Do you mind sharing the name of that crackle? Your coaster is so well done.
