A couple weeks ago, I acquired an enchanted embellishment from the Pre Winter Festival Fair. Since then I have been working tirelessly to no avail to figure out its power. After toiling for a fortnight in the crafting chambers, the Lady Commander of Copics suggested we take the bespelled bauble to Keapon Laffin’s lab and see if he could break the spell using his science.

I started this by colouring the Delicious Doodles “Halloweenie Crazy Chemist” image using Prismacolor pencils. The frame he comes with was simply too intricate for me to colour with my pencils (which I am unable to sharpen back to a sharp point...anyone with tips on what sharpener they use for this, please leave a comment; I still haven’t completed that quest), so I cut him out.
The background I stamped with the Lawn Fawn “Science of Love” and heat embossed it with some pearl heat embossing powder. I then coloured the beakers and tubes in (using Prismacolors) with the same colour liquid as the crazy scientist was holding. The sentiment I printed off on my computer and cut out. I first saw this sentiment when I was shopping on ThinkGeek and it makes me laugh every time I hear it, which also netted me +101 hilarious XP points. Last I added some red, orange and black twine to make it all matchy-match.
This bookmark will make a chemical reaction in the following challenges:
Watching the crazed scientist work, the Lady Commander and I found ourselves taking cover as explosions of colours and powders shook his lab. In the end, Keapon Laffin’s scientific experiments could not unravel the mystery of the new shiny. Dejected, my sister and I went back to the Guild Hall, deciding to shelve that task for another day.
