This is a close up of the focal image. I sponged the background with Memento ink. Since the challenge was to "texture" the image, I used an embossing plate and hand tool and embossed waves into the water and used a gelly pen to accent the wave. I also elected to add texture byadding twine and making Franciscan knots.
