Watercolor Good Fortune Telling Cards

Here are four cards from the deck
I have been busy making fortune telling cards. I used to have some different kinds of fortune telling cards when I was a substitute teacher in L.A. many years ago. I would tell the kids fortunes to keep them entertained. Once I told fortunes at a Senior Center Faire and of course I told almost everyone I saw romance in their future. I never knew for sure if I had some sort of genetic fortune telling gene or just an over active imagination, but it was a fun thing to do. 
The reason I decided to make the cards this week is I thought it would be a really fun project to teach. It would be something that students could leave class with and use to amuse their family and friends. My version of the fortune telling cards only contain cards that predict good fortune.
