Cats always get in trouble because of their curiosity, I know my cat does!! Look at this little cute cat from Magenta.. I don't know how or why he got the flower around his neck, but he sure looks like he has been up to something in the garden!!

This is the third card for my upcoming "Cute Critters" card class at Cranberry Hill Mercantile. We will make three cards in this class, to see the other two cards please click here and here.. This class is scheduled for:

Thursday, July 2nd, 11 am to 2 pm
Thursday, July 2nd, 4:30 pm to 7:30 pm
Tuesday, July 7th, 12 pm to 3 pm

Cost of the class is $30, 10 participants max

Class Kits will are available until July 7th, $35 each.

Please call Cranberry Hill Mercantile at 408-736-9151 to sign up for the class and/or purchase the Class Kit/s.

This card measures 6" x 6".

There is something that I want to ask you all, ask for your input.. What do you think about dark background on my photos, does it look better then the white one I was using before? Please tell me what you think..

Image was colored with Copic Markers. I stamped the cat twice more and cut out the flower and his cat separate to make the layers (both of the layers are popped with the foam tape).. Circles were cut with Nestabilites. Decorative paper is by My Minds Eye..

All the supplies used to design this card are available for purchase at Cranberry Hill Mercantile. You can call the store during the business hours at 408-736-9151 to place your order.

Personally, I think the light background works better on cards that have darker elements and the darker background works better on ones with lighter elements - the contrast helps them stand out better and helps the eyes see the details easier/quicker. For example, the Water Lily Skiing card might have shown up a bit better with the light background - the bottom left corner blended a bit. Honestly, your pictures are always so well done that it's almost nit-picking - whatever background is easier for you will do well for us, especially if it means that you'll post more of your art!! ; )
