What a fantastic challenge! I loved all the examples, but I chose Mt Fuji & Wave. Mainly, because I love the image and actually own it in two sizes. This is the small one.
I stamped the image (Museum Stamps) on matte coat paper w/ the coal ink, then heat set it. I used a water brush and various colors of reinkers to water color the image. I added the ocean spray w/ a white gel pen. I did a very thin edging w/ a black marker then attached it to a teal layer. I stamped the kanji (Stampendous) on the side.
Layered a bunch of times, alternating w/ the tangerine and black then finally onto a teal card. The ribbon was added somewhere in the middle of the layers and I added faux brads (made w/ 2 sizes of hole punches). TFL and close ups on my blog: The Write Stuff.
ETA: oops, forgot I did the image and next two layers w/ the Nestie rectangles that I resized. Tutorial Here.
