OKAY, SERIOUSLY why didn't I think of this? I don't like the copic sheet that I have for anything other than when I am going to purchase something and I haven't figured out how to keep track of the SU inks I have. This will work. Follow the link to Spotted Canary for this and other great ideas.
An ink catalog is simply a visual display of ink colors one owns, placed in an easy-to-manage-and-use format. And it’s a snap to make!
Let’s go through the steps to creating your own:
- Purchase your “housing.” the structure that will hold your ink information. I bought a small, 3-ring binder. I liked this option best because I can use white cardstock for the pages, giving me a true representation of ink color with the paper I usually use for projects. The binder option also lets me manage my pages easily and you can add more if needed.
- Create your pages. Create labels to name the color of each page or section.
- Fill in your pages. Select a color family and gather the appropriate inks. Using a small, solid image, ink and stamp each color onto the page. I inked once and stamped twice, recording what each color’s 1st and 2nd generation shade is.
