Car blueprint/spec plaque (featuring corvette z06)


#1

For my dad’s birthday, I made a quick “plaque” featuring his weekend car, a Corvette Z06. I pulled specs, “blueprint images,” corvette logo, etc from the web & pulled it all together into Inkscape.

This was an interesting project because of all of the different “file types” that were mixed into the project.

  • The corvette blueprints were .PNGs – I used the default “engrave by color” for that.
  • The corvette logo was a vector file, where I was able to fine tune different engraves & scores
  • The specs/text was converted to paths & scored.

Overall, very happy with how it turned out! We decided to keep the masking on the corvette image. My dad loved it!

Happy birthday, pops!

GREAT design! GREAT gift!
Not to mention your Dad has GREAT taste in cars.

My Dad’s 67th birthday was Monday, as a matter of fact. We’re still thinking about what to design for him!
