Quilled Side Saddle Lady
For those who are wondering what the side saddle is. Sidesaddle riding is a form of equestrianism that uses a type of saddle which allows a rider (usually female) to sit aside rather than astride an equine. Sitting aside dates back to antiquity and developed in European countries in the Middle Ages as a way for women in skirts to ride a horse in a modest fashion while also wearing fine clothing. It has retained a speciality equestrian niche even in the modern world. ( source: Wikipedia ).And now something more about my Lady on the bay horse. She and her steed is made of 3 mm paper strips twirl into teeny tiny loops! YES!! It’ is loads of work but the effect is worth it! To make this card a spent 5 hours with my quilling tweezers glueing my loops one by one.
As you can see this card is very details. I even made a horse whip or raiding crop I cut cocktail stick in a half!! OMG!! I must be mad or something 😉 That is not all, my teeny tiny horse has a curb bit. Of course he is refined dressage horse!
Ps. This card is an A6 size which means it is A5 card stock bend in half (copybook size).
