 Hallo!

  I have an old suitcase. A very old suitcase, in fact, it is older than me! xD It was my grandfather's suitcase from when he went to fight in the war over in Japan.
  It had a shiny metal over it on all sides that I removed. I made the metal border look worn and rusted and old and bent. I wanted to make this victorian looking. I had photographs found online that I wanted to put on, some of them people, like this old victorian cute couple!
http://media.photobucket.com/image/cute%20victorian%20couple/MarieAlice/victorian_couple.jpg
And I have victorian age Circus ads.
But when I printed them out and tried to decoupage them on, the ink ran and everything turned green!!! Cry
  So I scraped everything off and I want to try again. For those of you who read my other post, I couldn't get photos of my victorian wall paper up but I cut out people from it and will use it. How can I get the online photos onto my suitcase without the paper turning green? What else can I recycle onto it to make it seem like victorian memories? Help! I am new to decoupage. Maybe I could try modge-podge....

I like your ideas - definitely go for it

save the pictures you want on a usb thumb drive or a CD - go to your local desktop printing shop like Kwik Kopy Or Kinkos  - whatever - Get them to print your pictures using a colour laser printer or copier. since the toner is heat bonded, it won't smear or run.
No problem!

post your finished project - Cheers!
