Kirsten’s Class Samples, part two

Good morning, happy Saturday, Kirsten here with a scheduled post. 
There's still too much going on for me to post regularly, so I've had to write a few posts at the same time & they will be published as & when. 
Hopefully, 'normal' service will be resumed at some point. I'd like to show you three of my projects for last week's class today. 
The first one you might recognise from this post.
  I started off by covering the MDF plaque with a piece of Parlor Wall paper from Graphic 45's Olde Curosity Shop collection, which I added splats of Rusty Hinge & Frayed Burlap distress stains to & blended a little Vintage Photo distress ink on top.
The central butterfly was stamped with Versamark & covered with WOW's copper EP & the other butterflies were coloured with Weathered Wood distress ink.
When I'd put the piece together I flicked water over it & very quickly put Fran'tage EP on top, then heat set.  I did the same with the flower. 
I needed a very small quote for this & the only suitable one I had was a Tim Holtz stamp from my stash.  
This is on an 8x8 card blank. 
The patterned paper is layered onto core'dinations card. 
The pattern was very subtle, especially after I added distress inks - Vintage Photo, Walnut Stain, Tea Dye - so I stamped the Kanban images with black Archival ink.
  The bird & kraft birdcage are Craftwork card, (I stamped onto the cage with black Archival ink & heat set with WOW's Clear Sparkle EP), the bird's wing is the heart-shaped centre of the cage. 
The flower is Hobby House & Crafts Too & the ribbon is a scrap from my stash.
 This is another 8x8 card.  I put the stencil on top of a piece of linen textured card  & pushed Versamark through it, removed the stencil & put black EP onto the card. 
After heat setting & letting it cool, I blended distress inks - Tea Dye, Walnut Stain - on top, leaving it patchy.
The torn, patterned paper is G45; Before Your Time from their Kraft Recollections collection, I blended distress ink over it too.
The piece of paper on the lower corner is just a piece of copy paper, stamped & 'aged' by crumpling & distress inks.
 I added lots of metal embellishments to finish, details below.
