Cosmo Hold Fast to Your Dreams Art Tag

After a very long time without a printer, I finally have not only one but two, (Long Story), but the gist of it is I can finally print out my new designs and not only put them in my CS Designs Store but I can play with my own designs once again. I must admit I was going through a bit of withdraw.

This is my first new project since my Solitaire Steampunk Solitaire which you can see on the left hand sidebar. It won a featured spot on the Love To Create blog and it is my first for a challenge and was a nice surprise.

My New Art Tag uses my new Cosmo design, she is part of my ever growing Celestial Digital Design Stamp Collection, and I have grown quite fond of her, she has a quite and lovely demure and whimsical personality. Cosmo, as with most of my other work has been colored with Prisma Color pencils and blended with orderless turpentine. The middle layer of the Art Tag is a piece of recycled greeting card and the long green and brown beads are handmade and rolled from scrap paper. beads, The bottom layer of the card has been embossed with my Cuttlebug and sanded for a distressed effect.

This week Cosmo is being featured on Art With No Boundaries Challenge Blog along with the rest of my Team. This is part 2 of our challenge which was posted last week and the theme is Anything Goes and the Bonus Round is called Summer Skies.  If you create a project with the Summer Skies theme you will be elegiable to win the Original Quote / Sentiment shown in my Art Tag. This is an original quite which you won't find anywhere else on the web because I came up with it and created especially for Cosmo. I think she is such a pretty little thing and felt she needed something of her very own. Hope you like both Cosmo and the new quote.

I hope you will stop by Art With No Boundaries and share your art with us and know you will enjoy seeing the wonderful examples created but the CS Designs Team, as always they have gone all out and created some fantastic pieces.

So glad you got your printer.
Your tag is another stunner. You are truly a think outside the box artist. Love those colors and the paper beads are a wonderful finishing touch.

This tag is so rich in texture and colour. It's just gorgeous. I love the multi layers and the extra detail in each one. The colouration of Cosmo is beautiful. What a perfect quote for her. Lovin' those paper beads mixed in with the fibres, too.
