Beyond the Obvious - Totally Tabs

Ok, so the first time I saw this stamp set I said, and I quote (and those of you that know me heard me say this), "I see a face in this stamp". So I played and played and finally came up with this cute little puppy (kind of french in nature) face. And yes, as a kid (and even today) I would look up at the clouds and see different shapes and objects. So to create the face, stamp the tab image on close to cocoa in black. Using your paper snips, cut across the top and then follow the stamp image to cut in the sides to shape the face. Believe it or not, the dog collar was done using the 2 oval punches (small and large) by punching the small one first and then laying the large over top the cut out and then punching the "sliver" to make the collar.
The ears are "Pick a Petal" on choc. chip with black ink and cut out with paper snips.
