I've got this pix of some poppies and need to decide on a matte color for framing. I'm not happy with the terracotta, but that is the only thing that looks ok next to the print because the image has the pink poppy in it.

The black is the frame.

Any suggestions? I've tried cream, green & blue. Just need something to get this to pop.

Thanks!!

PS: Thank you soooo much for this forum!!! =)

tried just straight white? I think that would look nice...

My 2 cents...

Matte 1 (http://addesignconcepts.com/yo/matte1.jpg)
Matte 2 (http://addesignconcepts.com/yo/matte2.jpg)

Maybe a slighly creamy off-white... kinda like matte 1.

i have almost always used white.
you really can't go wrong there...
i also like big mattes...ones that take up a lot of real estate.

Funny! I stumbled across that one some time ago and forgot about it!! I'm going to have to bookmark it for future reference and keep my color wheel handy. I do like the black and white that admedia and nordberg suggested.

Thanks for the suggestions!!!
