that I love steampunk.  I am a huge fan as many of you know
and when Leslie created here blog hops for the year
I hopped on it!  Yeah yeah tacky joke

When she created the blinky for this 
hop i just about dropped because it
had all the colors of project


I was influenced by
on YouTube

 I thought it would be fun to use these bright colors
as though the aircraft crashed into the egg coloring factory

 I guess I should have painted the nest egg too huh?

 used the new arrival cricut cartridge to make the propeller and wings

Medium Egg coded styrofoam egg - Hobby Lobby
Plastic ties
Mesh and foiled tape

Papertrey Ink - Clock face
Donna Salazar - Gears
Tim Holtz - Gears and border Gears

Tim Holtz Distress Paints
mowed lawn, seedless preserves, spiced marmalade
mustard seed, broken china, picked raspberry, peeled paint
Jaquard - Halo Violet Gold

Metal Gears, bottle cap, nest egg - bead landing - Michael's
Propeller  - Cricut Cartridge New Arrival
Embossing folder - Tim Holtz Riveted Metal

This is absolutely amazing. I love all the details you put into this, and the fact that it probably DID crash into a color factory. Yes, please do a video. I would love to see how you made it.
