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.
Stamps: S/U's The Open Sea, Any Occasion

  1. Such a creative idea to use the porthole and great how you made it yourself with the die cuts and the pearls and the gold. Great ship stamp and love the colouring and how you freehand drew the birds and curled the sentiment to emulate the porthole. Great card x

  2. This is one of my all time favorite Stampin' Up stamps and I love how you've fit the ship in the port hole! Wonderful water details and I love the curved sentiment! Thanks so much for sharing with us again at CAS Watercolour!

  3. Wonderful old sailing ship with a great ocean and sky. Love the way you framed it with the porthole. Thanks so much for joining us at CAS Watercolour!

  4. Looking at the ship thru your porthole was the perfect depiction of an ocean scene. TFS Susan and joining us at CAS Watercolour..again! Hugs...

  5. What a creative idea to create the ocean scene within the porthole, Sue. LOVE that amazing ship. Thanks for sharing with us at CAS Watercolour!
