Here's another example of something you can do with Zentagle. This image was stamped with the Coffee Time image set, and the Coffee & Tea for you & me sentiment set, both from K Andrew Designs. I stamped the cup and started tangling. There are four tangles in the cup. It's a very plain tag (great stamps, no embellishment), the tangles just dress it up.
