Seahorse Card with Perspective

A group of very talented papercrafters at the Cricut Circle put on a series of challenges. One of them was All About Perspective with a wonderful tutorial by Nadia at With Glittering Eyes. I used the Seahorse cut from the Art Nouveau cartridge. All the pieces were cut out of white cardstock and then painted with various colours of Distress Inks (smoosh the ink pad on a nonstick mat, spritz with water and paint from the puddle). I bent the seahorse in the middle vertically and added extra layers of ink to accentuate the texture of it.

I also bent the seaweed and used pop dots in the middle of the seahorse to add more dimension. I opted for a plain Vintage Cream (Papertrey Ink) card base because I wanted to emphasize the seahorse.
