Hi all,  this is my first challenge, and I had a lot of fun!! This shrine was inspired by the old style “Man’s Ruin” tattoos.  They pretty much always have a sexy girl sitting in a martini glass in the middle and other symbols on the outside like a skull, booze bottles, dice, poker cards, stuff like that. I also tried to work in other tattoo theme images throughout the piece. I should have taken pictures when I was making it I made a HUGE mess all over the place making this thing.  It took me 2 days to clean up!

I was super excited when I realized that doll would fit nicely in a martini glass.  That’s where the original idea came from – then I read about the challenge with the macaroni and such and it all came together in my head right then.  A lot of the little doo dads are just random things I’ve hung onto.  I tore my place up trying to find all this stuff!

The doll is in a martini glass full of glass pebbles & silicone glue. In there with her are a winning poker hand of tiny cards, a black cat, and an 8 ball.  She has 6 arms and is holding beer, wine and a tiny roulette game.  Her pasties are skulls and crossbones.

The outer part of the shrine is a baking pan that I got on sale for a dollar.  Inside that, secured with gobs of silicone glue, is a cardboard lid from a copier paper box I painted black.  The backdrop in there features a border of gold pasta with gold pipecleaners along the edge, pom poms, fake roses with skulls glued in ‘em, and a bunch of doll hands holding a skull, a devil, a heart, dice (rolling 7), and in the center, a winged hand holds a revolver (I had recently found a baggie of random doll arms at the thrift store by my house)  Behind the doll is an oval mirror I found in the target dollar section a couple weeks back.  Tucked on either side is play money.

The top of the shrine is made of popsicle sticks painted green, topped with wood rectangles I painted red & stuck tiny playing cards on (those were another target dollar ailse find!) Aslo up there is part of a busted roulette toy I had laying around, Barbie shoes from the aforementioned thrift shop, dice rolling a 7, and a hand in the middle holding a plastic skull charm and an american express card that says “Your Name Here” that I got in an ad they sent me some time ago.  I always wanted to use that in something.

I forgot to take a "before" picture, but here's a pic some of the leftover supplies - better late than never, right? Smiley

A+.  That is eerily attractive.
VERY kitschy... I can just imagine it alongside a velvet/ blacklight portrait of The King.

Smiley Thanks for the kind words, guys!  Nope, those pasties are actually metal charms affixed with pins - so technically I guess they are actually piercings. Cheesy The teeny skulls are from Oriental trading - they are little plastic beads.  The devil head is from sacred kitch.  I was glad to find a use for that - I had it in my bead box for a while, but before this challenge came along I had no idea what to use it in!!

Hey Stifflersmom - is the shrine-along a craftster swap? That's right up my alley!

That is really wonderful. All the detail you put in! I really love all of this.
Now I want to make a drawing of it and have one of my friends get it tattooed.

LOOKING FOR A PERSONAL SWAP: I'm hoping for dinosaur-themed Xmas crackers, or other dinosaur Xmas items. I can make a Jayne Cobb hat, or many other things!

I am speechless. That is the most kickass ridiculously hot cool thing in the history of hot cool things EVER! I was just wondering what to do with a set of 4 random martini glasses that I have (I am not a martini drinker) and you have inspired me. Rock on with yo' bad self!

The first words to come out of my mouth were "Oh that's kick-ass."
