Bloghopping Time: Thinking of You Koi card

Hello everyone,
Today it's about bloghopping: Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L®️ and Hero Arts are taking you for a fun and creative journey combining their products.
Yep... I have the privilige of participating too!

I had such fun with the Hero Arts Color Layering Koi stamps and bringing them to life with coloring pencils and stacked 3D Foam Squares - Scrapbook Adhesive by 3L®️.

Yep... by varying the thickness of stacked 3D Foam Squares the card gets a lovely 3D effect...like the fish are really swimming!

The Koi fish were stamped with yellow, orange, red and black inkpads and to bring them to life I accented them with color pencils and gold accents.

The background is a stencil by Hero Arts.
I used modelling paste and then sprinkled some glitter upon.

The sentiment is also from a Hero Arts stampset: stamped with Versamark upon black cardstock, some white embossing poweder sprinkled upon and heated with a heatgun.

Some air bubbles made with sequins (glued upon the card using Adhesive Dots) finish the card.

For my card I used the following products:
