DIY Big Ben on my Cup

About a month ago I bought this Starbucks Create-Your-Own Scratch Tumbler. Originally, it is black. I couldn`t find time for decorating it so I thought it would be fine if I leave it like that. It looked classy.
Once, being in a bookshop I saw an engraving set in the kids children. Engraving is a special technique: you have a preprinted board and a special tool with the help of which you scratch it. Making certain strokes you reveal underlayer (in my case it was a silver foil).
The task was to scratch the board all  way through and to give some silver shining to London Parliament. But accomplishing this task I thought- what am I going to do with that? And here was a moment of glory for my tumbler! I just put the paper in it. It`s still classy, black and silver, but it reflects my personal style and my love for London.
