Another transfer technique we tried was using bead gel over an image. The flower is from a piece of specialty paper, the fairy is a jet ink printer image. Spread bead gel evenly over image and let sit over night.
Dip finger in water to wet, and gently rub paper off back of bead gel.
Continue to rub with wet finger until all the paper is removed from the back, be careful not to tear the bead gel.
The flower image transfered well:
I'm leaving the fairy image on the paper backing, because the ink started to run.
