While I've used white paper for the background of this craft you can of course change it to another colour if you would prefer. I'd recommend not using anything too dark though as you want the black paint to show as much as possible.
Not making this for Halloween? Why not change the colour of your cat? You could use orange for a tabby cat or why not use a darker background and make a white cat.
