one brick at a time snippets

I'm a bit late to the snippets playground this week and with a completely different card than I had decided to make! I've just done a card that needed a brick wall die and I had the little bricks left over, far more than here but it's a start in using them up. So that's how the card began, I also wanted to use my latest Seth Apter Spellbinders die. The splats are a Kirsty Wiseman stamp and the sentiment from Hobby Art stamps.

To complete the grunge look used my verdigris embossing powder and some mirror gold powder. I have had that gold powder since the early 90s when I first got into embossing. It never really gave a nice clean finish, but now I want a grunge look it was the perfect thing!
