Yam ATC's

For a swap, we were sent a mystery item to create Atc's with. 
We didn't know what the item was until we received it.

The mystery items were these Pacific Gold Yam labels.

 Here is what I created with them.

This first one has an ephemera background.
I added the lady from a book and words from a magazine.
The fork is stamped and cut out.

For this next one I used an old recipe book page to make my background.
The yam image is from the same page.
The orange words are from a magazine.
Utensils are stamped and cut out. 

This last atc also has an old yam recipe for the background.
Cut the lady from an old kids book.
Used that same utensil stamp used on the others.
And of course added the yam sticker.
