Adding Colour To Vintage Photographs and Postcards

colour, paper, artI AM AComment

Postcards and photographs always capture memorable times. Especially vintage ones, through time, it adds extra nostalgia. Meet modern embroidery artist Francesca Colussi Cramer, where she would embroider colourful cross stitches to enhance found vintage ephemera, from photographs and including postcards. Not only does the cross stitching add a very modern vibe to it, the stitching and the colours further enhances the depth of the postcard and tells a more rich story.

The vintage photographs and postcards include themes of a wedding, countryside landscapes and portraits.

P.S. We love the details of Francesca’s work, not only the front is beautiful, the back where you can see all the stitches and the thread are sew cool!
