Quiller Sea horse

 As I have mentioned in my last post I have been very busy lately, but I had an etsy shopper request a custom item which was a seahorse for a new child coming into their family.  I love doing quilling that has meaning and as a bonus it was a watery image which I love to quill.  I couldn't resist and I happily obliged her. She really liked my quilled octopus in style so I tried to do something similar.
 I guess the hardest part on this one was the general shape of the seahorse with the crimped edge it took a great deal of time to make it look exactly like the shape I had originally drawn.
 I love blues and yellows together. On it's own this yellow paper looks more like a cream tone but against the blues it just pops with a yellow hue. 

These are what the paper looks like before I twirl, swirl and shape it... This was a lot of fun to build, as I said before water is fun to quill. I will also be selling this as a custom build on my etsy shop, I just haven't set that up yet!
