CAS Watercolour Challenge June 2018 - Oceans - The Ocean

Hi Stampers,
Today's post is for the latest CAS Watercolour challenge for June.  For my card today I made a Scene looking out a Porthole to the Ocean for something a little different.  I Die cut the round Circles using my Spellbinders Classic Circle Dies.  I punched a Scallop Circle and sponged the sky to create the clouds.  The Sailing Ship and Sea were coloured using Markers and an Aqua Painter.  I then used a Black Artline Pen to mimic the stamp at the bottom of the porthole were the image didn't stamp and White Gel Pen to make waves and the White Caps around the boat.  The birds are hand drawn and the Sentiment was curled to the shape of the circle.  The Pearls on the Porthole were coloured with a Gold Metallic Sharpie.
In the next photo I tried to capture the shine of the Gold Card on the Porthole.
Supplies:
Stamps: S/U's The Open Sea, Any Occasion
Card: Thick and Thin Whisper White, Gold Foil Card
Ink: Stazon Black, Bashful Blue, Real Red, Crumb Cake, Pool Party, Bermuda Bay, Black Fine Artline Pen, 
Finishing Touches: White Gel Pen, Pearls, Gold Sharpie Metallic Pen
