Here is my take on this week’s sketch challenge from the Freshly Made Sketches blog.  Created my square using the watercolor technique on my acrylic block.  I enjoy all the different looks that you can get with this technique…each one if very different…no two are ever alike!!  Kind of like a snowflake!!

Card details:  Snow Place stamp set and matching dies from Stampin Up…Tempting Turquoise ink & card stock…Blackberry Bliss ink, bakers twine & ribbon…Snowflake brad.
