I would take it down to an actual art place, maybe they can give you something professional for it.  Or you could have a tag made to go over it when you have it framed.

Ewww, who would do that to your beautiful guestbook?  Was she drunk?

I personally would suggest that you take it to a dry cleaner. They have expertise in stain removal. Make it clear that you ONLY want the stain removed.

If you are feeling brave and want to try it yourself, the technique varies with the kind of ink:

I have used hairspray successfully.

Aw, I actually think it looks good. (I can’t see it in person so I’m sure I would change my mind). This is weird for me because I don’t like kids and I don’t like kids’ art. But I didn’t realize it was a mess up until you mentioned the heart. Without the knowledge I would just think the heart was supposed to be there.

But since you know it’s not, and you don’t love it, I hope you find a way to get it off. That’s why I’m so scared of letting any guests write on plates or canvas, etc. Because someone always writes something weird, or messes up or something. Boo.
