From DT member Cheryl:
 "Faces in the Crowd"

This piece was made using the inside of the pizza box lid as my background. I tore several sheets of kraft papers with some kind of printing on them. After attaching the papers and overlapping then as I went. I then used acrylic paint to change the colors of the lace to match my chosen color scheme. I painted one with an aqua paint and attached to my background. I cut the second of lace around flowers in the original pattern. I then white washed them and also attached them. I painted between several of the overlapped papers. My color scheme was a Shabby Chic combination of Pink, Peach, Mint green, Kaki and White.

I added an Asian book page from my Gauche selection and added my stamp collection.

With all my stamps I used Momento tuxedo black and embossed them with Ultra thick embossing powder. both items available on line at

After all the stamps where completed I cut each one out individually so that I could elevate then to different
levels. I attached them with both double sided foam tape and glue dots

From my Gauche Alchemy selection I also used velvet brads,three labels (I especially liked the Dads Root Beer label that contained another face for my creation).

I also used a chipboard milk bottle cap which I distresses (as I did with all the papers gauche supplied) and 
a piece of game money.

Following are the names and item numbers of the stamps
