Step 1: Background

First you will start with the white, you will mix it with some pink making at least 4 colors degrading,

You will put some white just in the upper side of the cap, just in the middle use the sponge to mix and form a gradient,from lighter to the darker you will add some pink color as you can see on the picture.

Then you will add the dark blue, the purple and a little bit of black.

Step 2: Mountains

MIx the white and black to get a gray gradients, and you must trace the silhouette of the mountains with the paint brush... Then you will add some light and darkness with Black and White.

Step 3: Details

Use a toothbrush to do the details, adding some white color and then spread over the cap to make the stars.

The trees will be made with a very thin brush with black.

Step 4: Finish

You can adore you new jar cap...!!
