The picture helps show how the card was assembled before I added the girl and other decorative elements that completed the scene. I used the SU! word window punch for the window, the sentiments are on a circle underneath, the brad allows it o turn. For more on View Master card construction, see this post.
I had several people email me or leave comments saying they don't think they could draw that towel...well, as with all the other "new do's" I've given her, it IS still her hair! Let me show you, you can do this. I colored in the bangs and left the rest of the hair white.
Then I made a curved line to connect the outside to the next section in.
I repeat this as I work toward her chin on both sides.
Here you have the complete wrap with just a bit of light gray on the underside of each section for a shadow. Finish coloring and cut out! ta da! I'll be back in another post to show you some flesh coloring tips, this is one of the only "lady" stamps I have, so I've gotten lots of practice with it! :) I have another card coming up soon that is similar in concept, really fun, can anyone guess?
Great Post! I will have to get that stamp set. I love it!ReplyDelete
I just purchased a bunch of your stamp sets. They are wonderful designs! I just have to get them all cut out and get busy making cards with them.
Thank you for the tutorial! I was one of the many who asked how you made the towel wrap. ;-)ReplyDelete
By the way, I gave you two awards on my craft blog. Come on by when you get a chance. I have been telling everyone about your blog... I just can't sing your praises enough!
Ohhhh......cuteness to the max!!! But I'm sooo intimidated to try a view master card!!! Can I get a lesson when I visit??? Oooo......in fact can I just take some of your brain back home with me???!!! LOLReplyDelete

I am awestruck by your creativeness. A towel from her hair??? AMAZING! And I love the rest of the card - its 3D!ReplyDelete

This is flippin' brilliant! How did you see a towel in her hair? You have that "magic" eye for sure! Spectacular job there girlie!ReplyDelete
DANG!!!! OK so I wasn't actually reading the text but just looking at photos so it took me a second to realize that you didn't use a stamp with a girl who's head was wrapped in a towel. CLEVER!!!ReplyDelete
