Card Backgrounds with Gold Alcohol Splash and Color Splash


Hello everyone! It's Juhi, and today I'll be showing you how I made these 2 gorgeous cards using Gold Alcohol Splash and Color Splash.

I know both the sprays have been around for some time and the Design Team has created the most amazing creations using these. Check out a couple of them  here and here. Being a Clean and Simple Card Maker I don't usually use color sprays on my projects but ever since I saw these beautiful  creations from the rest of the Design Team I knew I had to try them. I am so glad I did!!! They turned out to be so fun and easy to work with!
Here's how I created the gorgeous card backgrounds.

I started by spraying 3 colors of Gold Alcohol Splash onto the craft sheet. The colors I used were Frosted Pool, Midnight Blue and Citron Breeze. I then spritzed water onto it and placed a piece of white cardstock, front side down onto the spritzed ink. I moved around the paper a bit so that the ink reaches the entire cardstock piece. This technique is know as Ink Smooshing. On turning over we can see that there are some white spaces remaining, so I sprayed some more water on the craft sheet to activate the remaining ink on the craft sheet and repeated the process. Now the entire card stock panel was inked.
Gold Alcohol Splash inks are just amazing! All colors have a beautiful, shimmery gold hues mixed with them which in this case created a gorgeous patina effect. The shine is hard to capture on camera but is just breathtaking in real life!
After making the first background there was enough ink remaining on the craft sheet for me to make another background.


I used my favorite leaf stencil on one of the backgrounds and sprayed on it with Paprika Color Splash. I used Chipboard Embellishments and die cut flowers to embellish my card. Once I was happy with the arrangement of the embellishments I sprayed Citron Breeze over them.

For my second card I sprayed Midnight Blue and Citron Breeze Gold Alcohol Splash on a chipboard ornate heart.


Added some flowers and sequins along with a sentiment to complete my card.
