Blended Mermaid Scales Hello Card

Hello!

I’ve been on a little personal COVID break. I am out of isolation, but still masking in the house. No real lingering symptoms – I am still tired, but I think that is from doing nothing.

I read one book (an old friend – A Tree Grows in Brooklyn – that I wanted to revisit after touring the Tenement Museum in NYC a few weeks ago), watched some things on Amazon Prime (no TV in my isolation room, the laptop saved me!).

Supplies: Stamp – My Favorite Things, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Pop-Tone Black Licorice, inks – Tim Holtz/Ranger Distress Ink Peacock Feathers, Salty Ocean, Wilted Violet, dies – Lawn Fawn (stitched rectangles), stencil – Gina K. Designs, embossing powder – Ranger Super Fine Detail white.
