Crafty Cardmakers Challenge #226 Texture

Welcome to another challenge at Crafty Cardmakers. Jackie is hosting today's challenge # 226.
and the theme is 'Texture'.  As usual, anything you care to enter is fine, a card, scrap layout, mixed media piece,  some home decor as long as it meets the texture theme.
Here is a card using a wonderful older image  I had bought from Lacy Sunshine  (see Heather Valentine's Pirates of the High Seas). I need masculine cards so decided to try out this little buccaneer. My texture was obtained by using an embossing folder, some die cuts (big splash border die, whale die) and a piercing tool.

Card details:
Image: Lacy Sunshine Wilkes the Pirate and Whiskey Parrot
Sentiment: stencilled 
Background Embossing Folder -Cuttlebug  Divine Swirls  
Die Cuts:  Memory Box 'Big Splash Border Die'; Stampin Up 'Clearlits Happy Whale' (anchor, whale, star and fish)
Designer Paper: unknown, gave to me from a friend
Punch: one hole punch for the eye 
Colour Medium: Prismacolor Markers, COPICS for the flesh tones
Other:   piercing tool
