Male Steampunk

Hi Everyone
Hope you are all well.  I am on countdown now until my little break next week.  We are going to Budapest for 5 days.  If anyone has any hints on things to see and do when in Budapest just let me know.  We have never been there before so really looking forward to it.  

Today I thought I would share a little male card I have made using a stamp set that has had its first outing.

The stamp set is from Prima and is called 'Craftsman'.  I did the background first by blending distress ink and then blending through a couple of stencils.  The cog man, hand, cogs and sentiment are all from the stamp set.  I didn't have any coloured card that I liked so I embossed some white card using some Stampendous Frantage aged spice embossing enamel.  It gave the coppery look that I wanted.

Thanks for popping by and would love to know what you think.  The steampunk style is a style I struggle with but I am quite pleased with this one.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
