My DH and I made this for his (our!) grandfather's 80th birthday. It is a Model T from the same year Grandpa was born. We found a photo online, sepia-ised it, I inserted the text (taken from the Classic Pickups stamp set) using Powerpoint, and printed the whole thing off on vellum.
Printing on vellum was pretty fussy, and I wound up doing four practice runs before I found the right combo of print settings. Printing it like a normal document resulted in a really dark, orange image; I had to decrease the opacity of the ink and print on economy settings. I had originally intended to mirror-image the whole design so it would have a nice, soft look through the vellum, but I forgot to do this and was running low on vellum by the time I remembered. :( The lines showing up on the image here were not as pronounced IRL.
