Making only the "specks" visible in certain brushes

Really odd question, though I made sure to check the brush memories. Hopefully I'm not out of line.

 

Textures by recap 

How do I just make only the white specks part of textures such as these visible? I like the splash effect but I don't want the rest of the texture, I tried using magic wand but maybe I didn't do it right. My idea had been to use white specks on a darker icon. I use Photoshop CS3 for Mac.

Thanks for the help so far! Maybe I should explain a little further. I would like to just work with the "specks" without the background of color (like in the first example, I just want the specks, not the purple). I'm so sorry for not specifying further.

EDIT: Thanks! I found a system that worked!
