CCC #23 - Double Distress

'Double Distress' is #23 for the Compendium of Curiosities challenge, being hosted by Linda Ledbetter, on her blog, Studio L3.  To create my snowy night village, I used grungepaper for the background, ran it through an embossing folder and inked it with faded jeans and aged mahogany distress inks. Two of Tim's on the edge dies were used to make the houses and the snowflakes.  Liquid Pearls highlight the rooftops.
On this closeup you can see the sweet 'let it snow' stamp from Quietfire Designs and the sparkly effect of the Frosted Lace Stickles.
Another fun challenge!  Hop over to the CCC #23 Challenge on Linda's blog to see all of the fabulous artwork using this technique.  Cheers!


  1. WOW! This is wonderful. I love your scene. And your early too! Hugs..Donna

  2. Rhonda, this is one of the coolest, smartest uses of On the Edge dies I've seen yet! What a brilliant design! You always have such great artistic ideas, and you've outdone yourself this time!

    The double distress background is great, and looks like the Northern Lights shining above the little village. I love the sparkles and the beautiful "Let it Snow" stamp. I love it all, in fact!

    Ready for Challenge 24 tomorrow?? :-)

  3. I love this snowy village!!! I want to make these. perfect for the holidays.
