Zentangle Design Inchies for September 2015 ATC kit of the Month

This month's theme is making an ATC with Zentangle-type design inchies - the design is already done for you on the inchies.  The inchies have structured patterns with designs that build on each other; hence the Zentangle-type design. You get to color the inchies with whatever color you would like.  Fine tip markers will work best on these small designs.  You can also use the 1 inch squares as is; their black and white designs are pretty cool by themselves!

Here is what is included in this month's kit:
1 - 2 1/2 in. x 3 1/2 in. Black cardstock ATC card
1 - 2 3/8 in. x 3 3/8 in. Floral design cardstock to glue on top of the black ATC card
1 - 1 in. x 4 in. piece of cardstock that coordinates with the floral cardstock.
2 - 1 in. x 1 in. square inchies.  Each inchie included in this kit will be different.  
Inchies are made from white glossy paper that has been hand stamped with a Zentangle design with Black Staz-On Ink - You can color the 2 inchies with markers to match the colors of the floral background paper.
5 - 1 1/8 in. x 1 1/8 in. square colored polka-dot cardstock; red, orange, yellow, green and purple.  Pick any two of these and use them as a matte background for your inchies.  Glue the inchies to two of them.
2 - 1 3/16 in. x 1 3/16 in. square black cardstock.  Use these to matte the two colored 1 1/8 in. squares. These can be glued to the ATC.
1 - piece of black sheer 3/8 in. wide ribbon with white polka-dots
1 - small 5 petal Prima mulberry paper flower (7 different colors have been chosen for this kit; one will be included in the kit.
1 - small square silver or gold brad.  Use this to attach the Prima flower to the ATC.
1 - Collage phrase, "Tangle with me!"
1 - clear ATC sleeve
Everything you need, except for the markers is included in this month's ATC kit.  So enjoy and have fun!
