Close to the finish

I have almost finished my Octopus Treasury Cave. It is very difficult to make a good photo, the real colors are deep blue with some darker/lighter parts. It was hand dyed by Barbaral for me, and it turned out exactly as I imagined. Closest to real life is the first picture I posted, but the corals and the animals are much brighter and colorful in reality. I am not the best to play around with the photos, and lack the endurance to finish it properly. For the final one I will ask the in-house-know-to-all (aka my husband) and you will see it in full glory. Only the last shell is missing and the treasures - beads and crystals! I want to finish it during the 100 day Chatelaine challenge - there is still 15 days to go, so it is easy-peasy...
