As you know I love the challenge from CASOLOGY, this week they have a challenge theme: DATE 

Here is what is in my mind....two little fish meeting under the sea and make a date to meet each other and found that other fish special a one...

I used again my new watercolor KURETAKE GANSAI TAMBI from Japan that my DH bought for me for my christmas present. And I can't believe that the color really smooth to blended and it looks like a profesional colored Image. (I am not good at water colored and this water color really WOW!!! they can help much for me/new beginner by coloring the Image)

 This is the challenge Badge from CASology:

This is the stamp set I used for my card:

1. Sentiment from Hero Arts

2. Seagrass from Hero Arts

3. Two Fishes from Mama Elephant Pisces Stamp

4. The heart from a tiny heart at The Alley Way Stamps

One more picture of my card:

***The sea wave I made with this old video technique from Lisa Spangler.
