I’ll take 100 pistachio macarons please. Just like a chocolate chip cookie, or any cookie for that matter, not all macarons are the same.
The first time I had a macaron, I was confused with the hype. It wasn’t all that good. The cuteness factor was all there but the taste definitely wasn’t.
That was until I decided to give it a go again about a year or so later at another pastry shop.
I was hooked. I love those tasty little gems.

Just an FYI, I have both the macaron stamp and matching die cut. A die cut machine is required to use the die. However, the card can be made without the die cut (the die does provide definition and beats using scissors to cut it out).
I decided to color the macarons in with my watercolor pencils.
These pencils are fabulous and can be used in multiple ways.
1. They can be used as regular colored pencils.
2. They can be used with a wet brush or water brush.
3. The pencils can be dipped in water then used to color or draw.
For these macarons I tried versions two and three – and was very happy with the way it turned out.
After coloring in the macarons, I put my card together. I put some greyish/black cardstock on top of the white cardstock.
