What is the difference between dye, pigment and hybrid ink?
Dye inks are water-based and literally dye your paper. The ink is soaked up by the paper or cardstock so they tend to dry fast. Pigment inks are made of tiny particles that will sit on top of your paper and will take a longer time to dry. They tend to be brighter, with a denser saturation of color and work well with dark colors of cardstock. They are also great for heat embossing since they stay wet longer. Hybrid inks are the best of the two ink types (dye and pigment) as they have properties of both inks. They also tend to be more translucent in their appearance. Hybrid inks are suitable for all skill levels of crafters due to their compatibility with multiple mediums and surfaces.
What are color families?
The Scrapbook.com Hybrid Inks are designed in color families. Each color family has four individual colors numbered 1 through 4 (1 being the lightest shade in the group and 4 being the darkest shade of the group). Color families are an extremely important aspect of layered stamping because each of the four colors coordinates together to achieve a dimensional, layered look. Every Hybrid Ink Pad has the color family name and the color family number clearly labeled on the lid along with the name of the ink pad and the ink shade. NOTE: The 1 color for some color families is designed to be an incredibly light whisper of a shade for that group.

This is a very pretty color of ink and I like the name. I use darker purple when making Mardi Gras cards, or decorations, but this color is good. Used with the Pine Green and some metallic gold ink will make a real good trio for Mardi Gras. :D
Love the warmth in this purple shade...reminds me of grape jelly! Blends beautifully and stamps crisply.
Used in this project: I Adore You Card
Perfect for flower coloring!
The color of this ink is lighter than I thought it would be, but once I stamped it and compared it to the color on the lid, I saw that it matches the lid color. And, quite frankly, I'm glad it's not as dark as I thought it would be. It's a pretty color. The stamped image wasn't brilliantly crisp, but it was passable. And it's nice that it can be used on vellum (heat set it or wait several minutes before handling the vellum)
