"Home is Where the Heart is." Tea Towel

You can see my entry above. It's a fun mix of pinks and golds focusing on a very literal imagining of the titular theme. The anatomically rendered heart is one of my favorite things to draw, and it gets paired up with text which is something that is totally out of my comfort zone. The tea towel format for this month requires a border that can be used by Roostery as a seam allowance without cutting any of the design off. I went with the dark pink with a linen texture that will still work for people ordering from Spoonflower.
