Fashion Icon

A tag for the challenge at Dragons Dream Tag it On this week with the theme

I find it fascinating that......after I had finished the tag and just wanted to add some words from the song in my own writing down the side......I googled the lyrics and spookily I had included elements of them in the design!!! I swear to God that I only knew the words to the repeating chorus and could not sing the rest of it if my life depended on it! LOL
(there are an awful lot of verses by the way).....I wrote

"One week he's in Polka-Dots, The next he is in Stripes!
'Cos he's a dedicated follower of fashion."

The fab graph paper background is one of the new ones at The Artistic Stamper in archival chrome yellow...birds and umbrella man from the small acrylics in the QVC TSV...I stamped the umbrella from my other larger acrylic man, cut out and added some polka dots....base tag coloured with DI faded jeans, old paper and brushed corduroy.
Ribbon was white and coloured with fired brick.

Thanks for looking and happy stamping :)

  1. I love your fashion icon! Thanks for dreaming in fashion with us this week, Sioux, come back soon!

  2. Wow, the words to that song must have been somewhere in your subconscious! I love the polka dot umbrella and was wondering how you managed to stamp it without getting the little numbers on the polka dots - very clever! Cheers!

  3. Fantastic take on this theme, love the umbrella men die. Thanks for dreaming with us on TIO this week.

  4. Oh the Kinks! One of my favourite songs of the period.

    I love your tag and sorry not to have been visiting your blog lately - we seem to have been so very busy. But I did think of you last night as I put Kling On on all my Dance stamps!

    Have a great weekend.

  7. Love this brolly man and giving him a bigger umbrella works so well. I think he could do with some flowery wellies as well? Lol

  8. Brilliant. Would have been no good here last night though. For about 15mins it RAINED..!!!!!

  9. I love UM with his polka dot umbrella. It completely changes his look doesn't it. It's a great tag and how spooky that you designed your tag perfectly without knowing all the words to the song. They must have been in there somewhere!!!
    Hope all is good with you.
