I didn't have time over the weekend to try out my suggestion of using an embossing folder to create texture under tissue for the TLC, so this was my chance. I used the TH Mechanics ef. I coloured my tissue paper with Victorian Velvet, Antique Linen and Hickory Smoke DOX pressed onto a glass mat and misted. When it was dry, I stamped it with a text stamp, crumpled it up a bit and used gel medium to stick it to my piece of embossed card. When dry, I rubbed a bit with some craft-t rub-ons, and then used Archival Inks to highlight the embossing.
I used Loads of Love with dogs in the trunk, and Shore Thing for the dirt foreground. I made a lift-the-flap card and added a sentiment underneath - see other photo.
S - sentiment, stitched square
M - mixed media
I - assorted inks
L - lift the flap, loads of love
E - embossing, envelope, eyelets

Adorable and it most certainly should give Rex a pick-up. Love the inside sentiment with this fun cover. It's great seeing dogs in the pickup bed -- like Jeanne said, always have to have a dog or two in a pickup. And, again, that bg is stunning. Love that ef and the colors. Awesome card.
