Stamp sets used on this card are C1024 Kissy Fish and D1026 Beauty Seen (CTMH). I also used B&T paper from the Beach House My Reflections paper packet. Ink colors used are Breeze, Indian Corn Blue, and Desert Sand. Ovals are cut using the Coluzzle ovals template. I cut off a small dot from the "Water" stamp in Beauty Seen to make little dots to make it look like a porthole from the inside of a ship. I would rather have used silver eyelets there instead (to make it more realistic looking), but didn't have enough of them at the time (I have since replenished my supply LOL!) I also used a silver concho between the eyelets on the left and added a little wiggly eye to the fish inside with a mini glue dot!!
Another cool thing that surprised me while creating this is that the hair gel I used has a flowery scent and so my card smells really good too!! I also added a little bit of scotch tape on the inside to secure my baggie of gel and to ensure that the zip-top inside stays sealed so the gel won't spill out if it gets squished. Yes, this card is mailable!
