Tim's tag for August features a die-cut mixed media background.
I attempted to mimic the effect by using his Subway stamp over a scrap from the Destinations paper stash.
I also used his vellum Ephemera--the square in the upper-right corner and the checkered board behind the photo (which is a Found Relative that I cropped and altered just a bit).

Remnant Rubs provided the black text (except the "B") and the Mirrored Star was distressed with a copper and citris alcohol ink combo.
The oval frame is a thin textured metal scrap that I tacked to the tag with hand-stitching.
A bit of machine stitching, some stamping here and there for texture (tiny black squares and splotches) and black ink to distress the tag edges finished it off.
