Keep that in mind that whatever you carve away will be inkless. If you want an inky background, carve into the lines of your design, and if you’d rather have your design hold the ink, carve around the line on either side—making it whatever thickness you’d like—and cut away the rest.

That being said, sometimes the best results come from accidental moments; If you think you’ve messed up, don’t abandon ship. See what you can make of it.
