Peace Mountains
by Laura Fulcher


Greetings friends.  Last weekend my mom and I played around with making backgrounds using watercolor powders, coffee filters and some glossy photo paper.  We were inspired by a Splitcoast Stampers tutorial on YouTube, which you can view here.

The process itself was very simple.  We took a coffee filter, sprinkled a few powders on top and then spitzed the filter with a lot of water.  Next, we placed the filter on top of the glossy photo paper and let the watercolor transfer from the filter to the paper.  If we didn't get the look we wanted, we spritzed the filter again with water and placed it again onto the glossy photo paper until we were happy.


When I used this combination of colors, I ended up with a background that looked like this:


The background reminded me of a night sky, so I thought it would make a nice backdrop for the Snowcapped Mountain die:


To make the mountain circle, I started with a kraft cardstock circle and then cut out the mountain:


The die comes with the mountains as well as the mountain caps, so I cut out the caps separately from white cardstock and glued them onto the mountains.  To add a bit more interest, I sponged some Vintage Photo Distress Oxide Ink at the bottom of the circle and then added a blue "peace" sentiment.






Me encanto la técnica que usaste el resultado Muy Lindo.
