Thank you for a great tutorial! I learned several Illustrator techniques that up until now, I didn't know I was missing. My biggest challenge was figuring out how to keep the integrity of an opacity in the design after dropping it in the swatch panel.  A masked layer solved this issue.

I am inspired by the colorful embroidery artwork typically seen on Mexico's folk dresses and used this as the base for my sketches.
