Here is a bit of the back story. Her cousin, was diagnosed with cancer. At first they thought it had spread because they caught it somewhat late. They were coming up with a plan of surgery and chemotherapy or radiation.
So her close friends, including my mother got the prayer warriors going. That is our first response when faced with a trial...PRAY. We believe in healing. We believe the God of the Bible is alive and well and he works and moves in the present day. So our immediate default in a situation like this is to seek him. So we prayed, and prayed and believe for positive news....and we got it. The cancer was localized, it didn't spread and the margins were clear. After surgery and it was gone. No chemo, no radiation necessary.
When my mom's cousin reported the news to her she said "I touched the hem of His garment and I was healed." This is a bible verse from the book of Mark in the Bible.
So my mother wanted to create something for her cousin based on this powerful story...because she had felt that Jesus saw her through this challenging time and healed her. So she found a picture online and asked me to make something with it...my mother is not very crafty...like at all. The picture was not high resolution so I thought a canvas transfer would work well. The finished product is a rustic, aged look and it is certainly not going to look perfect...so a low resolution picture is not that big of an issue. Here are a few I have done before in black and white. My first attempt, our wedding picture, could be much better, it was my first go at this and now I have perfected it!!!
In the process some of the ink is going to come off. That is okay! That makes the picture look unique in the end!
Most likely your picture will still look a little foggy...even if you try and get as much paper off as you can....I have a trick for this though. Spray it with water and when the fogginess goes away, lightly pat it dry and THEN seal the canvas...WHILE it is still wet. The paper that disappeared with the wetness will stay invisible. I seal it with a matte varnish, like the one in the picture and it dries completely transparent. Finished!
