Advent fun with Pebbles!

I started by creating the base just, as you can see its just a bit of cardstock with  some stitches added.



Next I added it to my frame and added my Advent Cards that are just Pebbles 

Countdown Banner with my added notes on the back. (here is the link I used for the my Advent verses http://happyhomefairy.com/2010/11/30/bible-verse-advent-cards-free-printables/

Next I added my first layer of color using my colorations spray. 




Then it was time for some stamping fun :) I was lucky enough to be working with the 

Muse Altered Artist & Muse Orient Express Stamps.



Next I added a bit of shine and texture using my Copper Metal Effects & a new AA stencil.



 I kept I adding color with a bit of shine by adding a thin coat of 
Sorbet over my layer of mist. 



A bit more stamping :) 



I just had to use my new favorite stencil & with some Raider!



A bit of Gesso to add some contrast....
