All my colored work has this color scheme, I do have other colors but they sit in the box unused. I found a really good journal for ink and wash yesterday, it's a $7.00 sketch pad with 200gsm paper, specifically for ink and wash, they come in smooth or textured. It's one of those pads that you can tear the finished page off easily, I don't like that sort. I bought it because it's so hard to find sketchbooks with good paper for wet media and I was sure I could make it more durable, I found some resources on the net about Japanese book binding and ended up using these instructions . However I didn't take the book apart at all, just sewed it close to the original binding tape and stuck a piece of watercolor paper on the front which I will embellish at some stage. Perhaps I'll post a pic of the finished cover at a later date. All in all I was very pleased with the result so far.
