Sacred Heart ATC

This ATC is entirely hand drawn and colored.  The object of the swap was to represent the sacred heart symbol in an ATC.  I guess the swap coordinator inspired me when she mentioned paints, pens, pencils etc.  I felt compelled from the start to do this one by hand.

This is also the first time I ever used alcohol inks.  The heart is done with red alcohol ink on a piece of semi gloss card stock.  The flames were then drawn with a permanent ink pen and colored in using my favorite new tool – Prismacolor pens.  The Prismacolor pens behave just like the alcohol inks – and can be blended using the colorless blender.  This made the flames look more realistic and the background mottled.
