Rats Class 101

Happy Birthday wishes Leanne Boyd!! :0)

Eek kitty and his studies. :0)
Some time ago when I had pet rats I had this book laying by the cage and one of the cats curled up on it making it a great photo opp, but the pics didn't turn out so great. This months education theme brought that moment to mind & got me thinking about recreating it.
Manual settings 1/25 sec. 5.6 ISO 800
In PS7 I used the Sketch>Stamp filter, History Brushed Eek, then added some more green to it in the upper left corner & the lower right corner with the the Lasso tool & paint fill.
