What's your Muchness?

What's that you ask?  The Oh Alice Blog has a fun challenge this week, What's your Muchness?  The theme, what is the HEART of your stamping style, is it your favorite embellishment, "signature style", favorite technique.

For me, my "muchness" would have to be multiple layers, techniques and the use of Black card stock, to pop my layers.

I used the wonderful new images from the Artistic Outpost Beyond the Sea plate.  Stamping the images  in Black Archival, using some Eclipse Tape to mask the images to create the scene.  To add the background color, I used the Glimmer Mist Watercoloring Technique, then added color to the images with Ranger Distress Inks.

Details:
Stamps - Artistic Outpost
Card Stock - Black, So Saffron, Teal, Matte Coated White
Ink - Black Archival, Ranger Distress Ink Dried Marigold, Milled Lavender, Old Paper, Crushed Olive, Tattered Rose, Wild Honey, Corduroy
Other - Glimmer Mist Crushed Shells, Caribbean Blue, Eclipse Tape, H20 Brush
