Day 3 of High Hopes Hullabaloo!

We're in the home stretch of the High Hopes Hullabaloo! Its almost time for the unveiling! Here is another sneaky peekie for ya! I hope you're having fun so far!
I actually took some inspiration from last quarter's guest Diva Nicole for this card. Its almost a direct case, at least of the sketch. I am sketch challenged so I either do up a plain card, or copy someone's!
I colored the image with my Copics. I have had a lot of people ask about the highlighting I do. It really isn't hard, so I think I'm going to plan a tutorial for sometime in the near future. As you can see, I have a nice highlight on the mustard bottle, among other things in this picture. It is a matter of leaving an area completely white and blending with the blender pen afterwards. I'll show you when I get time to do up a good tutorial with photos.
Check out the other projects the Divas have been working on for more sneak peeks!

More cards coming on Sunday!
God bless and thanks for coming!
