Pool of Tears

I hosted a Classic Alice swap for April Fool's Day, and, again, I had a hard time deciding on an image. I ended up choosing an illustration by Mabel Attwell. Although this card looks pretty simple, I spent a lot of time experimenting with it. I ended up using Prismacolour pencils and blue watercolor paint. Each card is backed with a fun pink playing card. Since the playing card was slick, I covered the inside of it with gesso so that the adhesive would work. The card's info was stored bookmark-style in a handy slot between the two cards.
