Alter a Box with Smudgy Antics

Welcome back for another fortnight challenge with Smudgy Antics.  For this challenge we want to see more than just paper and glue. We want to see dimension and lots of it.  The Smudgy Antics team wants to see you guys and gals ALTER a BOX!

You may use any type of box.  The box can be big or small, cardboard or wood, even plastic.  The shape can be creative as well.  Do you have any lefover heart shaped boxes from Valentine's Day? If so, you may be a hoarder, but you will have a cool box to work with!

Although the focus of the challenge is to alter a box, you must still use a stamped image (real or digi) and you must follow the rules posted in the sidebar at Smudgy Antics to be in the running for a prize.

My piece is a work in progress....... meaning it's not quite finished and I warn you there are quite a few photo's

First of all this is what I started with

Which I painted with Acrylic paint
and coloured the edges with gold ProMarker

This is the finished front cover
The inside has yet to be completed.

The main image is a Rubber Stamp from Smeared Inks As Death set, also available in digi. The corner stamps have been embossed with little crystal skulls attached. The die cut is by Spellbinders.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenge(s)
