I'm currently working on building a portfolio of Greeting Card designs. I love working in Procreate for Greeting Cards because you can keep the illustrations clean and handle changes so quickly and easily. 

But I have always felt sort of how hum about how my illustrations have looked in Procreate. They just felt like nothing special until Stephanie began to help me understand color and texture overlays.

And then very easily I was able to take my illustration from looking like this:

To looking like this:

I was so thrilled with the success of this design that I decided to do another with even bolder texture:

So far in these I've only been working with digital textures but just as soon as I get a chance to get messy I'm going to experiment with creating some of my own textures!
