Hello watercolorists!
Trash Dove Hello (not my art) 

No, you don't have to be scared, this time we don't have a challenge for you, just a regular theme. =D

Some time ago we asked you which theme would you prefer and the most votes got "Night".
a sparkle night 

You voted, we announce it. ;)
As you now know...
It's AQUACHALLENGE time!
Where were we? :plotting: Oh, yes...
 
_______________________________
The THEME is:
.:Mini moon n star:. Cresent Moon Emoji   NIGHT Cresent Moon Emoji .:Mini moon n star:.
