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.

You make things so easy for me! I was drooling over the cards and here you're sharing the graphics. For some reason these make me think of Paul's shipwreck and the faithfulness of God.
