{Tip} Choosing Springy Copic colors

Spring and Easter are right around the corner, chances are your cards are going to reflect the season change. Get ready now by making sure your Copic collection has bright Spring colors from the YG, RV & Y color families.
Remember to pick at least two colors from each color family, pick a shade lighter than you think you may need. It's easy to add more color; but hard to take it away!
For blossoms, you may want to pick colors from the RV or Y color families.
Here's a quick refresher on the Copic marker labeling system:
I'll use RV 32 as an example. RV represents the color family "red/violet", the "3" is the intensity level so the partner for RV32 will also start with RV3_. The final number in the label, the "2" is the brightness level. I'll choose RV34 as the partner for my RV32.
I am using YG63, YG67, RV32, RV34, Y02, Y04, and Y08 on my stamped Paper Smooches images below. Paper Smooches acrylic stamp company has great images to use with Copic makers because of the open stamp designs.
