Hope you're having a blessed week with lots of warm summer weather! Unless you're tired of warm weather, then I hope it's cool and refreshing where you are!

We have a really beautiful and challenging sketch this week for the Our Daily Bread Designs Shining the Light challenge. Hop on over and join us, all the details are here.
I knew immediately that I wanted to ink up this pretty watering can and colored it with Inktense watercolor pencils and a water pen, then added glitter glue to the flower centers and the butterflies. I wanted to be able to see the satin ribbon underneath the bow, so I placed it sideways and accented the bottom with a lace border die.
