Here is my inspiration for you 

I have created two Mother's Day cards with the wonderful vibrant Gold Alcohol Splash 

The wonderful range of Itsy Bitsy Gold Alcohol splash can be used in endless number of combinations both on porous as well as non-porous surfaces like paper, glass, metal and more.These vibrant hues in spray bottles are great for card making, scrapbooking, mixed media, altered art , bottle art and much more.
These are Alcohol Inks and are different than any other product available in the market. 
Gold alcohol Splash can be blended with sponge blenders and diluted with Alcohol Blending Solution ( both available in stores and online )

The Gold Alcohol Splash are Glossy and can give a dimensional effect. The special feature of The Gold Alcohol Splash is that for the first time ever the Alcohol colors have come as a spray and with Gold Metallic Mica !!! These colors are translucent and it is easy to build layers of colors like you can see here.............

Here are all the 12 gorgeous colors ..........

I used the Itsy Bitsy stencil and Iris card stock and sprayed through the stencils......

Use sponge blenders with Gold Alcohol Splash in case you want a more controlled application.....

The colors dry very fast but can be re-activated with the Alcohol Blending solution....

Layering of colors through various stencils.........

I added some modeling paste through the stencil.......background using Frosted Pool, Citron Breeze and Marigold...........

here is the other background ..........using Purple Haze,Frosted Pool, Pink Punch and Marigold

I die-cut my elements from a paper. Used Wild Rose and golden mocha......I kept the stencil on paper and sprayed both the colors and simply folded  the other  paper on it...., you can see the distressed effect of Alcohol blending solution sprayed in places......

 Mounted on black cardstock and a side folding white  card base..........

The chipboard sentiments are colored using Wild Rose and Golden Mocha

Hope to have inspired you.
