This card was designed from an old Works Projects poster from Philadelphia in the late 1930's.  I tried again to do a two color process before realizing it would have been easier just to color in the blue elephant by hand.  But you live and learn.  The card stock i used had a tan marble effect to it which made it look kind of aged.  If you ever see the real poster i think i have done a pretty good representation of it.  The image struck me as interesting with the elephant being slightly abstract and the bold letters "Visit the Zoo" underneath.  It wasn't a bad recreation of a part of the past.
