Kitty Food

As a number of you know, I recently acquired the Silhouette for my birthday.  I just LOVE this thing!!  I took these pics, which OMG it's hard to take a picture of glass that you've etched, so I hope you get the idea.  I bought this ginormous glass jar from Walmart for $20 and it holds about 8kgs of cat food.  The lid is big enough for Rafferty's bowl to fit right in and scoop out food.  

SO!!  I put kitty tracks around the whole outside of the jar and wrote KITTY FOOD on the front.  I later discovered that maybe I should have left the etching cream on for longer and more then what the bottle said.  1 minute my a--.  And also that maybe I should have just stuck vinyl to this project using a brighter color cuz now when I put cat food in it, you can hardly see the etching.  Oh well!  Lesson learned but I was still happy with the outcome for my first time.
