I'm  quite happy and thrilled to host the first challenge for the year 2014 for Imaginations and we have a whole new team of our very talented designers too who would be showcasing their take on the challenge and bring out their creative best !!!
I would also Thank the Imaginations team for having shown faith in me and I hope to do justice to all my projects in collaboration with Imaginations :)

HI, I am MANU GUPTA..a software proffesional turned craftpenter.. I am a mom to a 6 month old cutie pie ans she has made my life all the more enjoyable and fun!
I find crafting extremely satisfying and relaxing and it just brings out a smile when someone is happy because of my work!!
I am blessed with loving and supporting husband who is always by my side encouraging me, amd now..
Lets check out what the current challenge is all about, and I'm sure you are gonna love it

Challenge #1: Techniques with Distress inks!!!
Yes, you read it right, Technique with distress inks, now dont we all love our distress inks?? So lets get a little crafty, go wild with our imaginations and come up with something colorful and vibrant using the distress inks!! And yes, distress inks can be very very addictive.

WINNER will get a voucher worth rs 500 and a badge..
and the TOP 3 will be getting badges ... 

Now, here is my take for the challenge. Since it's quite hot and you never feel like taking a stroll in this weather (and not much nice flowers to see around) I decided to add a color bash to my crafty table !!!

Here's a flower pot card with loads of distressed flowers!! Now aren't they adorable?? I simply love them!!! The flowers are embossed with black EP and then filled up with distress inks using a blending tool.

Here's another pic with the insert out, and which has space for the messages to be written!
