Lots of lovely black at Tuesday Taggers

It's Tuesday so it's time for my Tuesday Taggers DT work. This week our lovely Teamie Lyn has chosen 'lots of lovely black' as the theme, so I've altered another M&S mint tin. I starteed by colouring it all over in Black promarker. It covered brilliantly and you could only tell what it had been by the texture of the lid. I then covered the lid in Brilliance starlight black and triple embossed it.
I stamped the Hero Arts leaf flourish in Brilliance Platinum planet and heat set. After that I stamped and embossed three flowers in detail silver from the Inkadinkado Mindscapes set, finishing each with a central black pearl.
I hope you get the chance to join us this week. Pop over to Tuesday Taggers and check out the fabulous inspirational work by my lovely teamies.

Wow! This is fabulous, Sally! I never thought of using Promarkers to cover a tin. It obviously works really well if this is anything to go by. *Goes off to find tin..* xx

Beautiful, Sally. Bet it's dreamy in real life with the Starlight Black. I think I'd have used Stazon for the tin, though - wouldn't waste my black promarker, he, he.
