I don’t know that I’ve ever made a Kwanzaa card – but I did today! And I’m giving it away, so keep on a-reading….

I had created today’s card in Copic a while back in my attempts to come up with new card ideas, and this time I decided to watercolor it – I’ve been on a painting kick for days and can’t stop with the watercolor!
Here’s a close view of the collection of pigment around the stamp’s arm – see what I mean? Gah. I really need to come up with some ways to solve that. I don’t think it ruined the card at all, but it bugs me!
I didn’t mention the snow on the ground at the end – I left a “square” of light on the snow, painting the remainder of it a barely-there blue (lots and lots of water).
I’m planning on coming up with a watercolor class soon – I think I’ll have a big launch of a couple classes for Black Friday to coincide with that big sale (coz let’s make it fun, right?)
I’ll be giving away this Kwanzaa card – leave a comment and let me know YOUR family’s Kwanzaa traditions! I don’t know much at all about the holiday and would like to learn more. When it ocmes time to send out my cards for the season I’ll pick someone who leaves a comment here or on the YT video page!
