Say Cheeeese!

The Less is More challenge, this week is yellow and grey.
So what better than a rat with cheese? I did allow for rosey cheeks and tail, I hope that's ok.

I used a  new Katzelkraft stampset called Les rats des villes. I chose the grumpy one as I thought that was funny with the sentiment...

I stamped him on Crafter's Companion Neenah paper with Simon Says Stamp Intense black ink and I colored him with my Spectrum  Noir markers.
I did the sentiment in Photoshop, I started with those and then cut up the sheet and then stamped.
I free handed the block of cheese.

I then mounted the panel onto the cardbase with tape runner.

For more information on the Less is More challenge, see this.

  1. You really made me laugh Maaike with this sensational card! That rat's attitude is so funny and it reminds me of me of my grandson when he doesn't want his photo taken. These images are just perfect for the colour combination. A very clever take on the challenge and I love it! Thanks so much for joining us at Less is More xx

  2. Fun card, Maaike. It made me laugh. Love your creativity and the freehand block of cheese looks delicious. Thank you for joining us this week at LIM.

  4. Absolutely love this card. I like your sense of humor. The cheese is genius! So, you printed "Say Cheese" directly onto your card front?? Thanks for sharing your talent, Maiike!

    1. yes I made four cardfronts with different texts in photoshop and printed it onto the neenah paper whilst still one big sheet and then cut it into quarters and stamped them en colored them after cutting
