Copic Matches for Stampin' Up Colors

First of all...these are my personal choices for matches I have done IN PERSON. I did one layer of Copic ink on Papertrey Ink White Cardstock. The matching was done by holding the sample up to both the SU Marker and the SU Cardstock of the coordinating color. So, the results could be different if you use another brand of white CS. In the event of the match being in between shades, I chose the lighter one since a second layer of Copic would match it right up. Some SU colors have no exact match, these are created by TWO layers of Copics. One of the colors mentioned will not match by itself. In this photo you can see what I mean by this, the two smaller birds were colored with G21 and BG93 separately, neither is a perfect match for the Sage Shadow color, but when layered on each other in the larger bird, it looks just right!
So, here are my choices for Copic colors to match SU colors:

This is really terrific. I don't own Copics yet but am taking a class next month, so assume I will eventually start collecting them. This is a great reference since I do use primarily SU products. I will be bookmarking this.
