Today I went to the market in the village to see if Mikal, the owner of the weapon shop, would buy my design for the Red Spritz Bomb I had invented. Luckily he was looking for some new explosives to stock his shelves and was interested in the bomb I had come up with. After a short but colourful demonstration, he thought maybe we could infuse the bomb with fire magic so it would cause massive fire damage upon detonation. Mikal then asked if I would be able to make another one, but in perhaps a different colour so we could infuse it with a different element. I was only too happy to oblige.
At the urging of the Lady Commander of Copics, I decided to make a little army of these Valentines cards
using different colours of spray inks. So once again I masked off the
middle strip and gave it a couple shots of Dylusions spray ink. This
time instead of scoring the seam I used a border embossing folder and
ran it through the Cuttlebug. I then used Lawn Fawn’s “My Silly
Valentine” and stamped the sentiment and pears, colouring them with
Prismacolors. I dug into my stash and found two little heart shaped
green buttons and added them to the card.
On the inside I stamped the sentiment from “My Silly Valentine” along with the pears again.
time on the envelope I used the Dylusions “Luscious Leaves” stencil and
some spray ink to decorate it. I then stamped some green hearts onto
some of the leaves.
This creation will come into fruition in the following challenges:

having already worked out the kinks when experimenting with the Red Spritz Bomb,
creating one in another colour was a relatively simple process. I chose
to create a green one, which Mikal and I then infused with a magical
poison. He now had a “pear” of the bombs and I went back to the crafting
chambers to continue working on more colours.
