Ship in a Bottle

In looking for masculine inspiration for Father's Day cards, I came across this gorgeous card on Splitcoast!
I followed the links and found the bottle template, using that and a few free ship images I made my own "ship in a bottle." I also made my own map background as well. Freebies below!
To color my ship I used colored pencils. Then I used some brown chalk and sponged around the edges after which I  spritzed  it using blue and brown BIC markers.  I also used the spritzer on the map, compass, and Kraft cardstock the way it "ages" the card.

I've been looking for masculine inspiration for Father's Day cards, and couldn't help "falling in love" with these "tree cards."  Not owning any stamps quite like these, I decided to make some digital images similar, but with their own twists.  I'm sharing them with you today.
Coming Soon: Father's Day creations of my own, using these images!
