CMCC#81 - Colour Me... Playful!

It's the beginning of a new week again!  And today is an off-in-lieu for Youth day for the kids and we have planned to visit the Universal Studio with my little dude.

And this morning I've planned to wake up a little earlier than the boys so that I could have a bit of time to take some snap shots of the card I've completed yesterday night.  I'm actually very excited about this card as it's for the challenge at Colour me...!



This week's colours are very interesting.  At one glance, they reminded me of Neapolitan cakes and ice cream and then gradually I started to think of macarons with flavours of framboise, green tea, cassis and vanilla.  Ahhhh.... macarons.  How good it will be if they aren't laden with so much calories!

These macarons stamped images were from Avery Elle ~ Bonjour.  Instead of using my favourite Copic markers to colour them, I decided to play with my watercolours.



I like the way they turned out and I ended up with lots of macarons (:

It was totally fun creating this macaron card!  Totally calories free!  And I also added a stamped frame from Taylored Expression From Me to You stamp and die set, and complete the card with the "Merci Beaucoup" sentiment that comes together with the Avery Elle Bonjour stamp set.


 
Right after I took the pictures, I popped one of the Fleur de Sel macaron that I bought from Antionette right into my mouth, and it tasted so good.  What is life without a bit of indulgence once in awhile, right? *wink*!

So let's keep calm, eat macarons and craft on!

  1. Can you believe that I've never had a macaron or a macaroon? Nevertheless, this is just as cute as can be! I adore the way you've stacked them up down the center of your creation! Great take on the palette! Thanks so much for playing along with us this week at Colour Me...!
