If you posted a copy of the original file, perhaps we could give you some useful advice. Also, what software do you use for image editing?

You need to open it in Photoshop or GIMP and do some hand editing to erase the remaining artifacts.  That's the only way I know how to do it.
I recreated the text & touched up the lips.
Paul, it looks like it's the JPG currently on this website.

Hi jonathanduane2010m,

I really think Photoshop or GIMP are overkill, especially if you are novice at this. I would use Paint.NET (free).

Open the Sunkissed-Logo.jpg with Paint.NET and select the Magic Wand tool (on the left panel). Set the Tolerance in the top tool bar to about 40%. Hold down the Shift key and click with mouse pointer anywhere on the white background of the image. Press the Delete key and the background will change to a checker board trnasparency. Save As png or gif (for the Internet).Transparent backgroudThis is the result:Logo
