Thanks for stopping by my blog! Today, I am sharing a light up card for the Under the Sea challenge hosted by  Art Impressions ! This card features the new Submarine Cubbies stamp set which is part of the Critter Cubbies collection. Check out all the new 2021 products from Ai  here . Keep reading below for details on how I made this light up creation. This project is featured on the  Art Impressions  blog today as well, check them out  here . I used a piece of A2 sized pattern paper to create the vibrant under water background. To create the sandy flooring, I die cut a stitched hillside from kraft cardstock and distressed the edges with Vintage Photo Distress ink. I used the same ink to create the sandy look (splatter effect) on the sea floor. I used my Copic markers to color the submarine and the aquatic creatures.
