So, when is a pet rock not a pet rock? When it looks like a potato (apparently!). Confused? Let’s just say that there is much debate at my house over whether I have depicted a rock or a potato in this card. You be the judge.
No, I don’t still have it, and no, it didn’t look like the one on my card. It was a glorified piece of blue metal from the roadside that got wrapped in foil. At this point, it underwent the transformation from pet rock to ‘magic’ rock. (Please tell me that I am not the only kid in the universe to ever have done this!) I will save you from the many magical adventures I shared with my pet rock, suffice to say it was a short but significant chapter in my pet-owning life! 😉
Anyway, my magic rock wouldn’t have translated well on a card, but I thought these little guys would:
How cute are they??
I actually sourced them from this blog , and thought the accompanying post (and insufferably cute little pigeon) was a hoot!
So FINALLY, here is my take:
Actually, it’s my fourth take! The first was in my sketch book (and of course, that turned out perfectly!). I smudged the sentiment in my second attempt, I wasn’t happy with heart placement in my third effort, and finally we have a winner!
I don’t have a rock stamp, although I know Waffle Flower has a really cute one! To create mine, I hand drew a rock mask on a sticky note, before inking the negative space and adding the necessary embellishments (he HAD to have googly eyes!)
Some say ‘rock’, some say ‘potato’. Either way, I love him!
