This Charming Man

On reading the new challenge theme at Dezinaworld, “Charming”, what immediately popped into my head was The Smith’s “This Charming Man”. Taking a walk down memory lane I remember the first time I saw The Smiths, this was on Top of The Pops and I was entranced by the lead singer, wearing a floral shirt, beads and flowers hanging out of his jean’s back pocket singing “This Charming Man”. From Divas D’Este I had the perfect images (from Debonnaire Frenchmen collage sheet) – so here is my trio of flamboyant, floral gentlemen.Here are the trio of tags. I picked the colours from the actual images.

A little bit of stamping.Pink ric rac and heart embellishment.Tags are perfect for using teeny scraps. I used scraps of fabric ribbon stickers, ric rac, etc.

Reminder – I am participating in OWOH. Everyone is welcome to leave a comment – there are no other requirements. Lynne x

    These tags are so gorgeous and masculine at the same time! Love the way you used the colors from the gentlemen in the tags.

    I really do love these charming men, so it is nice to stop in for another visit! I have only done one project for the Smitten class, so I believe you are still ahead of me. I just can’t to seem to find all that I need and the fact that I don’t do “pretty” is hard for me to compromise!!! Have fun!

    wow Lynne, nice tags.
    I agree tags are the perfect size to use up those scraps no one wants to throw away.
    Again these are lovely.
