Dusty Attic Bamboo

Don't you just love this epic Bamboo chipboard piece from Dusty Attic?!!! 
It is so beautiful that I couldn't resist doing a layout whit it when I saw certainly is a bit different from the usual which was what attracted me to it in the first place I imagine!

I have teamed it up with that spectacular background paper and embellishments from the 
Merry & Bright Collection from Kaisercraft.

I've used loads of gold accents in this layout trying to go for that classic asian feel ... so there are gold edge stickers, gold inks, and gold bauble thread. I like the final balance between the green of the bamboo and the yellow of the gold accents.

As usual I couldn't resist a few metal embellishments and the brass finish of these just seems to work in so easily with the gold theme, so I've stuck as many as I could on the page! LOL

The chipboard bamboo itself was very easy to colour... I used ink first, applying with a blending tool and then I just used a coloured marker to go back over the leaves where I wanted more depth of colour and action on the flat chipboard. Colour blends beautifully on these chipboard pieces!

Thanks for dropping by...
Cheers from Kelly-ann.
