Easter Choo-Choo Express



I finally entered one of Dustin Pike's challenges!! The first one I missed cause I was overwhelmed with making birthday cards. The second one I just missed entering my baby shower card and gift box by only 20 minutes :(. So I am over the moon that I made this one! I created this train for Pike's Playground with the challenge being "Anything But A Card with an Easter Theme". All images are from Doodle Dragon Studios and colored with Prismacolor pencils. Here are some close ups of each piece...








I had a lot of fun making this 3d train its going to look great on my table Easter morning. For now I'm putting this up somewhere high cause my 2 year old son loves to play with it! It won't stand a change of surviving if he realizes there is chocolate inside!!

Thanks for checking out my first 3d project I hope you love it as much as I do!

  3. This is such a great idea. I love the train and in 3D. Next time you should put chocolate inside everything is better with chocolate. Great job!

  6. Thanks everyone! No file for the engine...its a toilet paper roll cut down to size. I capped the ends and made a mini box with tabs that inserted into the top (lol if that makes sense). It took the creative thinking of both my and the dh to figure it out. We make a great team!
