Just the two of us
This piece features cross-stitch techniques to pixelate the original image, as a play on perception vs. reality.
Embroidery is created by hand, directly onto the postcard, using French cotton embroidery thread and hand-dyed silk thread. The vintage postcard was originally printed in Illinois and features a pair of pups in a wooden barrel. The tight embroidery has also helped mold this postcard so that the stitched puppy is almost 3-dimensional.
The vintage postcard measures 3.5"x5.5" and is unframed. Piece will be signed and dated on the back in pencil. A certificate of authenticity is included.
