Here's looking at you

I think this is just a fun fish to be staring into a port hole of a ship.  couldn't resist making a gel card with this fish.  Here are instructions I wrote for Speedy TV I wrote a while back.  It's really an easy card to create just takes a little patience and if you know me in person you know I'm not a patient person but I have made several of this type of card. There is a lot going on in this card besides the cheap hair gel in a mini baggie....I made this card look like the fish, who I colored with prisma color pencils, was looking into a ship's port hole....he looks a little surprised at what he is looking at....what do you think he sees?  As you can see this is a wood ship because I used a wood grain embossing folder for the texture and since ships or boats only go out on the water in the summer I thought this is a good summer card.
