    Wow! That is beautiful and I think you are very comfortable with that process. I can't believe that is your first.

    Well done! Was this a kit? It's perfectly put together, but I'd need a kit. (Dither on colors, etc.) Seahorse gals are smart...they let the daddies carry and birth the babies!
