photocopying your work

A few years ago I dyed some paper.  I scrunched it up and soaked it in fabric dye.  I ended up with the most wonderful collection of paper.  Great color, great texture.  I just love these papers.  The problem was I no longer have those dyes so I could not recreate the papers.  They became too precious to use.  Silly, I know.  I know we all do that though. 
The light bulb came on.  I could color copy them!  tada now I feel free to use them.  I actually really like the idea of color copying my work.  It allows me to take an idea further without wrecking the original.
