A Bit of a Drama Queen by Jaine Drake

I love a bit of theatre, who doesn't now and again? Christmas is made for theatre and drama I think and this gorgeous stamp soon to be available to buy, by our own Karen is full of flamboyance! What better than a dramatic black background, the stamped image and a bit of extra bling (if there wasn't already enough) with shimmery gold.

I'm always a bit nervous of stamping and embossing on black but I needn't have worried as this detailed stamp is a dream to use. Embossed with Pearl Gold Sparkle brings out those details in such a dramatic way and creates a gorgeous finished image.
I sprayed the stamped tag with water and scrunched it up in my hands to create the crumpled effect. When this was dry I rubbed a little gold paint over the surface to catch the creases. Before this dried, I wiped over the embossing to clean it off.

To add a little colour to my tag, I added red Ranger Stickles glitter glue to a few of the details and stamped and embossed the sentiment from the stamp set with Ruby Romance Embossing Glitter.

I love this dramatic look and think I might create a few for my Christmas gifts. Keep your eyes on the lookout for this new stamp coming into the shop.

  1. A very pretty and quite dramatic look to this tag Jaine and love the pearl gold sparkle and the gold paint in the creases rubbed off to give that lovely soft highlighted effect to the base black colour. I love the pop of red with the sentiment and the little jewels on the stamp too. x

  2. Very pretty, both grungy & gorgeous!
