Alcohol Marker Cards - A Happy Accident

I spent some more time experimenting with alcohol markers to create backgrounds. Today's cards were the result of a happy accident. 

Typically, after the markers have been used to create the base background, rubbing alcohol is applied to make the colours move. I accidentally splattered some of the rubbing alcohol on a piece and really liked the dots that formed as a result. I spattered more and the end result was really neat! The top card is a result of that accident. The bottom card is the same technique as I have tried in the past. I stamped a sentiment and embossed it in white for the first card - for the second card, the sentiment was just stamped in a coordinating colour. Both were die cut.
