    You might want to try hairspray, it works on ink pens. Other than that I'm guessing start over. :( :( :(

    Maybe someone else on the board knows something I don't. I'll be watching!!!

    Gotta love those grandkids.

    Try rubbing alcohol - I used to work in a print shop and I used rubbing alcohol on my hands and clothes.

    Oh No!!!
    If you try various solutions, make sure you do so in a well ventilated area...even drying between trys, can produce some caustic fumes.
    I did have to chuckle...my little "artists" have tried to help me too over the years :roll:

    seriously, don't toss it. work with it if you can't get the "eyes" out. it can become a design element!

    Who knows, it may become a work of art. If nothing give it to her when done, it will be a memory for both of you.
