31  Lego Classic Catwoman! in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Krafty_Karasu on: May 10, 2013 01:31:08 AM
I got the little green cape as a free gift when I bought some Legos a while ago.  I had no idea what I was going to use it for, then one day, while looking up Catwoman - whom I love - I realized that there was a Catwoman who wore a purple dress with a green cape.  it was then that I knew what I was using the cape for.  the problem was that I had to repaint EVERYTHING since there appears to be no such thing as a purple skirt slope or a plain purple torso.  but also, Catwoman's mask only comes in black.  I found the PERFECT purple, then proceeded to buy the parts I needed, except for the whip that came as a 2 pack when I only wanted one for my other Catwoman minifig, and the gem which I had from a pack of gems I bought to use with the other Catwoman and a Jack Sparrow minifig.  the mask came from the UK, so it took a little while to get here, but when it did, I was SO happy.  I spent Thursday painting everything and this is what I came up with.



for my first custom minifig, I'm pretty happy with her.  Grin

here's my inspiration:

32  Silent Hill 2 cross stitch and decoupage frame in CHALLENGE 86 ENTRIES by Krafty_Karasu on: May 04, 2013 01:47:44 PM
so back in 2010, I had the great idea to organize an OTT swap titled OTVGT (One Tiny Video Game Thing).  my partner achgfd, like me, is a fan of the Silent Hill series (namely Silent Hill 2 and 3).  she also loves the main antagonist of Silent Hill 2, Pyramid Head.  so, I got the idea in my head that she needed a cross stitched picture of PH.  but I ran into the issue of what frame to use for it.  a wooden frame wouldn't really look good, a silver or gold frame would be horrible, and a black frame would be just awful.  then I had an idea.  see if you can figure out what I used to cover an ordinary frame:









give up?  it's tissue paper dyed in tea.  it gives the frame this awesome aged look that fits in perfectly with the world of Silent Hill.  I even tea dyed the Aida cloth PH is stitched on!  it's a small frame, a 2x3 maybe?  about ATC sized.  I covered the frame in mod podge, a few layers of the dyed tissue paper, more mod podge, then a clear sealant.  I was just so happy with how he turned out.  Grin

34  Asian matchbook book in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Krafty_Karasu on: March 29, 2013 08:14:59 PM
ok so, I got this blank matchbook book a while ago from Smmarrt.  it sat around in one of my "stuff" craft supply drawers until last week.  I decided to decorate it with the help of my Cricut.  I will tell you one thing about layered cartridges; I hate them because they just seen like so much work for pieces that some times end up not fitting together.  the little kimono you'll see is a great example.  here's what I managed to come up with:

front:


back:


pages side 1:


pages side 2:


there were 6 pages and I planned to do both sides, but I was just so uninspired that I decided to glue the pages together.  it didn't come out as great as I was hoping, and I notice things I don't like about it (exposed base color, I guess I don't know how to cover things that get folded so the inside crinkled up and the outside slipped out of place, the ink on three of the pages doesn't want to dry and no one will help me figure out how to make it dry, etc.)

36  another Harry Potter shadowbox! in Completed Projects by Krafty_Karasu on: March 25, 2013 08:04:36 PM
Unfortunately, everything on the bottom came off except for one piece, fortunately it was to a friend who was understanding and still totally thrilled.  I really love how this one turned out.  she supplied some of the pieces and requested that it lean more towards Slytherin House.  and, because I was already afraid that being tipped just a little would cause leakage if I used liquid "potion ingredients", I used all dry items (and it's a good thing too since the PO workers were obviously playing catch with the box and dropped it a few times).  I'm actually kinda mad at myself for not coming up with the Runespoor Eggs for MY table.  Tongue  anyway, here's the shadowbox:

 CLICK THE PICTURE TO SEE A LARGER IMAGE

on the table, we have Skele-Gro, unicorn horn, vervain, runespoor eggs, salt, Tom Riddle's diary, Helga Hufflepuff's Cup, and a crystal ball.  there's also a long bottle with a eagle owl feather in it (I had no idea when I was picking out ingredients BEFORE she told me she wanted it Slytherin themed that Draco owns an eagle owl.  pure coincidence).  under the table, we have a pot of Floo Powder and Marvolo Gaunt's Ring.  you can also find Rowena Ravenclaw's Diadem on a pedestal made from a wooden spool and an owl on the "floor".  above the owl is the Mirror of Erised with Nagini slithering over it.  in the middle is a winged key.  above the potions table is a pendant with "Amortentia" on it.

I really love how this one turned out.  you can see the first one I made here.

just offering up my opinion on why it was mistakenly marked as "mature"; pictures are never automatically marked this way.  they are either marked by the person posting the picture or by a moderator.  as it turns out, it looks as though when this picture was uploaded through Craftster, the "mature image" box was accidentally checked.  I can see the image tag when I quote your post.  removing the mature image tag will take care of the issue if a mod doesn't get around to it for a bit.  Smiley

this is the information I see:  [mature img width=500 height=402] *picture name and location here* [/mature img].  without a space between "mature" and "image", this shows up:

finally finished with my challenge piece!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

behold; THE SHADOWBOX BOOK!


Click the picture to see more!!!!!

most everything is stuff that I've either bought over the years or got in a swap (thank the gods for the cabochons I got from corduroy cat.  I needed something to go under the windup key with the star buttons, and I was going crazy trying to find something to put it on so the hearts would swing freely).  I need more frozen Charlottes now that I used my only one in this.  Tongue  the opening is covered by a thick piece of plexiglass (so I don't have to dust it!!!  lol).

oh, and no fabric in this either.  just throwing that out there.  Tongue

I do not know where this idea came from.  it just hit me after I read about this challenge.  I am so incredibly happy with how this turned out!!!  so of course, I now want to make more.  Grin Grin Grin

first I'll show a picture of it straight on, then some closeups, then a picture to prove that it is an actual book:
