Default Looking for Copic Colors to Match Tim Holtz Distress Inks

I am loving my distress inks, finally! Played a little bit over the weekend and made some great backgrounds. Now I am wondering if anyone has a list of copic color combos that match Tim Holtz great Distress Ink shades. I want to color my images to match my backgrounds and didn't feel like experimenting if someone already made a list. Anything out there???

You can water color with the DIs. Perfect match!

Wouldn't it come out much lighter because of the water/waterbrush? I am DID. Distress Ink Deficiant, lol.

You don't have to use much water, or any at all, if you don't want to. Water would do your shading for you - the DIs are designed to stay true even with water. You can use craft nibs http://rangerink.com/?prod_name=Craf...ibs-and-holder like a marker.

I am looking for the same thing too. What colors of copic markers match up to distress inks.
Thanks,
