I have been playing with the Italiana Riviera Collection from Heartfelt Creations. I love this set of stamps, dies and co-ordinating papers.

How it was all put together:

Backing papers were trimmed from the decorative paper pad. Images were stamped with waterproof ink, cut out and then coloured with watercolour pens. They were then shaped with a ball tool and soft mat to give them dimension. The gate and window decorative elements were cut and embossed from black card. Gilding wax was applied sparingly to give a metallic effect.

I have taken a quick pic on my phone to show you the elements that I used on each card.
