We are so pleased to bring you our next Spotlight On...Bhavana Kesarkar!  Bhavana's projects are eye-catching, clever with a lovely clean and simple aesthetic.  Her work is dramatic, striking and fresh with just the right feeling of space.  Just look at THESE CARDS and THESE CARDS she made for our 1st Birthday Bash Challenges!

Wait until you see what she's made will see Bhavana shine!       


Hello Everyone, I am so very thrilled and happy to be here at Winnie & Walter Blog for the Shine the Spotlight On feature. Thank you Shay and Julie for giving this opportunity to show my love for Winnie & Walter products.

So over to me I am Bhavana, I stay in California with my wonderful and very supportive husband. I enjoy card making and it makes me happy. You can visit my blog Blending Art and Craft. When I first came across Winnie & Walter products especially their Bold sentiments and sequence stamps I fell in love them and had to use them.  I hope you all like how I used their products on my cards. 


This month's theme is "In Bloom" and for my first I used In Bloom: Addie's Garden and The Big, the Bold, and the Happy stamps sets. I white embossed the blooms on a white cardstock and applied distress ink. I used mustard seed, picked raspberry, barn door, seedless preserve, mowed lawn and peacock feathers distress inks. I later fussy cut the flowers and leaves and arranged it on the kraft cardstock which I die cut using Essentials: Audrey Cutaways  couple of flowers and leaves are using the foam tape. The sentiment too is white embossed. The front panel is stuck on white card base with foam tape.


The second card is a geometric bloom. I used My Precious stamp set for this card.  I stamped the precious stone is a circular fashion to give a look of a flower and colored with copic markers and added wink of stella clear glitter over it. The sentiment too is from the same stamp set and add a couple gold enamel dots. I took a white card stock colored the all four edges of the card with same copic maker and used foam tape to stick the front panel on the the card base.


And for my third card I used In Bloom: Addie's Garden and The Big, the Bold, and the Happy stamps sets.  I used mustard seed, spiced marmalade, vintage photo and mowed lawn distress ink for stamping. I first inked the stamp with distress ink and sprayed some water over it and stamped directly onto the card base.  Also sprayed vintage photo ink with a small brush over the card base.


I thoroughly enjoyed making these cards and would love to see your comments.
