Papertrey Ink 9th Anniversary Dress Up Inspiration

Day two of Papertrey Ink's 9th Anniversary challenge involves making something inspired by a piece of clothing. I found this cool shirt on

You can find it here.  I loved the chevron pattern and the unique color combo so I set about making a card mimicking those features.

The chevron pattern was easy to create using my MISTI and the PTI chevron stripes stamp set.  I followed this wonderful video by Maureen Wong.  It's called Modern Borders Backgrounds.  I embossed my stamped chevron paper with a retired Stampin Up Sizzix distress embossing plate to give it more of a texture similar to fabric. I cut the text block die out of aqua mist cardstock and also smokey shadow adhering the smokey shadow one slightly offset to create a shadow.      I'm not sure the sequins look right.  I always have a problem with trying to place the sequins randomly.  However, I really wanted to pull in that blue/teal color.
