Hanglar & Stanglar - Shabby ChicK

I love Hanglar and Stanglar but they are not for sell here in the US (more's the pity).

BUT I do have a Norwegian connection and some times she'll send me a few. I'm not entirely sure of the Swedish/English translation (it doesn't read like Norwegian) but I think the title of this stamp is 'GIRL WITH A HEN'.

There's a new Hanglar & Stanglar challenge blog and round #2 was for a SHABBY CHIC card.

So I got out some of my hew Tim Holtz stuff (paper, die cut edge, stick pin, ticket) and did a "grungy" card. The image was watercolored with Distress Ink and my aqua pen. The sunflowers were cream and heavily sprayed with SUNFLOWER Glimmer Mist (I *LOVE* that color). I' m not sure you can see the brown swirl under all the flowers and stuff - but I cut that with my Slice. (I'm trying to learn to love my Slice...). And for some extra "glitter" I used the clear dots. I don't think they make them any more (too bad) but they're flatter than the Dew Drops and add some sparkle. As I was editing the picture I thought I should have inked the edges of the background paper for more distressing - guess she's a "clean" shabby chic!

Did you catch the "K" I added to Chic in the title? (grin).
