HDH In the Naughty Corner

It's our midway post for the now monthly challenge at HDH.  The theme is the Naughty Corner which gives you plenty of leeway. You can either make a naughty project, or a project about someone or something who's been misbehaving, or create something with corners, or decorate the corners.  We're easy in the dungeon that way, but we DON'T tolerate anything overtly cute or mainstream.  Capish?  So I had great plans and decided to decorate a candle box.  The fab corners are the gargoyle corners from Delicious Darkness that is coming back to life (after the nasty VAT laws ruined everything) on Etsy as ArtiDoodles.  Teri is slowly managing to add her vast array of fabulous stamps to her new shop and I'm hoping these corners will resurface soon.  The good news is that they are currently available as part of the Gargoyles Rubber set from Smeared Ink. (scroll down to get yours)  The center piece is a Skull from Anatomy 101 from Smeared Ink and was printed, fussy cut and dunked in the melt pot as instructed in the fab tutorial by Black Dragon in the Smeared and Smudged FB group.

Here's the dimensional shot.  I printed each corner 4 times and fussy cut and layered them with Pinflair and had full intentions of dunking them in the melt pot as well, but got sidetracked with a very exciting (but in the end disappointing) basketball final for the Big 10 championship where my beloved Spartans lost to Wisconsin.  The 3+ glasses of wine consumed during the game and my inconsolable state from our loss forced me to put the thing together without the faux porcelain finish on the corners.  Honestly, at that point I might have ended up with 3rd degree burns.  I expect harsh repercussions in the dungeon but they'd been worse had I abandoned the project all together so there ya go.

I'm entering this in the Smudgy Antics March ATG challenge.
