So after consulting with my friends, I carved away all of the black. But that left the crib looking strange and awkward to me. Sooooooooo, I decided to pull up some of the linoleum and start over. I've only done this a couple of times ever. I use a lot of glue and once it's dried, the linoleum is really hard to pull up! This is how it looked:
Then I glued down a new piece of linoleum, transferred the drawing, and carved it.
Here it is carved.
And here it is printed- so much better! It still needs some watercolor, but overall it's a big improvement!
