When the dice is done, I cut 2 scrapbooking sheets into 4 and distressed all backs and edges of 6 from them :
Then I stamped this paper (that will be on the top of the block) here and there with Florence's Flowers stamp :
On the 4 other sheets I stamped a single big one of some other Debbie Cotton stamps :
and here is my block :
To decorate the top of the block, I added some little things like cogs, a fridge lamp, a car key and key holder, a dried rose, and....
