Challenge 137 | A Sketch + Double Trouble!

It's time for a sketch challenge and to make it even better we are partnering with the Double Trouble Challenge!

RRCB 137
To play along with our challenge - just follow the sketch and use at least one stamp older than a year!  That's it!  

Here’s the cool part:  by teaming with Double Trouble you get to play along with their challenge as well!  All you need to do is follow their requirements which are super easy and fun!

 

Kitchen background 4

THING 1:  Trouble Maker says, "Help us stir up some trouble with a 3-2-1 Recipe that can be used for any occasion." 
     From: Our Kitchen at Double Trouble
Servings: Unlimited portions of Fun
Ingredients
3 - Colors
2 - Embellishments
1 - Seasoned Stamped Sentiment (clear or rubber stamp more than one year old)

Directions: You may use more than the recipe ingredients stipulated but you must include at least the required minimum of each ingredient for successful results.
 

Thing 3 with angle background
THING 3:  Twisted Sister says, "Let's get straight to the point. From my point of view, I see a sketch with sharp angles so here's MY angle: Using the sketch, create a project using at least one angular shape without round corners, i.e., triangles, quadrilaterals such as square, rectangle, parallelogram, rhombus, etc.  That's my angle and I'm sticking to it!"  
 
 
Thing 2 as Sketch
THING 2:  Double Dare says, "If you have created a project using the Retro Rubber's Sketch #137 above and Trouble Maker's  3-2-1 Recipe with a "seasoned" stamp... You will receive an additional chance at the Double Trouble Random Draw." 
 

Be sure to visit their website – Double Trouble Challenge – to get all the details for their challenge to make sure that you are following their requirements as well!

So here we go!  Double the fun!  Double the Trouble!

 

Remember to use a stamp older than a year and you must include the age (or approximate age) of the stamp in your blog post. After all – we want to give these old stamps some love!
