To get the look of sand on the paper I took a sheet of 12x12 Sahara Sand Cardstock, ripped it, inked the ripped edges with Sahara Sand ink and then overlayed the 2 pieces. I stamped the crabs and other critters in True Thym ink on the Sahara sand, I found this to show up a little bit better than Sahara Sand Ink. The celery piece is inked with Turquoise ink, using a sponge. For embellishments, I stamped and watercolored a crab, cut it out and placed it in the sand. I also wrapped some grosgrain ribbon around the corners of one of the photos.
