For the start of the week I’m sharing four postcards from our 2014 Creative Challenge to re-interpret WW1 postcards.
The first two feature ribbon embroidery.
Robyn Duncan has created an elegant and understated postcard with a lovely message:
Diana Churchill has also used ribbon embroidery to create a delicate and evocative heart with a simple but poignant sentiment:
The next two postcards use Whitework to create a subtle, delicate and beautiful message.
Annette Horvath’s postcard combines Cutwork with a charm to evoke the period:
Ros Stanford also uses Whitework to create this refined symbol of a heart (love) that incorporates an anchor (symbol of hope). She’s added a sprig of rosemary for Remembrance.
These postcards are all profound in their own way with the common thread of elegant embroidery techniques to create powerful symbols of love and hope that resonate deeply.
Have a good week!
