A long time ago, I was working with the loteria and accidently overprinted two cards, the corazon and the rooster card - it was one of the most fortunate overprintings ever (altho not the only one I might add!) because from it, I was given the sacred heart chicken which has been since that time, one of my favorite images - perfect for those of us who at one time or another have found ourselves to be faint of heart in love or other endeavors.

The SHC began as tin plaque painted deep red, approximately 10" tall. And I swear this is the truth. I was working on something else using the large red wooden heart and happened to lay it on top of the metal heart and it looked so good that way, layered with the candy tin frame for the chicken that I just had to leave it that way and abandon the other project which I'll go back to another time. The metal heart is lightly trimmed in non-dimensional copper glitter glue; the wood heart is edged in copper tape (the kind you use in stained glass work). The chicken is ensconsed in the lid of pastille box which I left unpainted (meaning, you can see the wording on its sides - just liked it that way). The inside of the lid is trimmed in fine cut sapphire blue glitter, and clear rhinestones. The "flames" at the top of the sacred heart are orange and gold Christmas ornaments wired to the metal heart. I'm still debating whether I should glue them tight or not.
