Magenta or Black rangoli

About Magenta or Black rangoli : PRINT

I had worked on this rangoli about a month ago (saw a part of this design on a pillow cover in a store). I was working with both colors simultaneously, just to get a feel for the design. I deleted the pink/magenta design and was going to work on completing the black one, but one of my family member saw what I was doing, and went on to argue with me, with the idea that magenta looks better than the black. So, "black" should be deleted. I am a big fan of black colors, so I couldn't do it. I'm going to go with what majority of our members say here. Typing one word will do; either "black" or "magenta" (what ever color you mention here, is going to be a keeper). Thank you in advance Smile

Lovely design and nicely assembled! You know what, to the black design instead of gold borders, add the magenta borders and see how it looks. Also you can make the central circle pink and see how it looks. Contrastwise, the black scores over the magenta.

Pretty Design, Lataji.......My Vote too goes to Black..... but JKMji's suggestions could also be taken into mind........ I too thought the same way on seeing it..... You can try choosing one of the colour as background too......

8 for black (I've included my vote too), and 4 for magenta (including Mani's vote). So I guess I'll work with the Black one, and incorporate the suggestions given also.
So, Mani, say bye bye to Magenta! I told you so!! nya na na.... Would you like me to buy something in that color instead? How about a nice Hawaii shirt dear? Come to think of it, you don't own a magenta colored Hawaiian shirt, so a magenta shirt it is then. Smile
Speaking of Hawaiian shirts, I'm going to raid your closet, and make a topic on Hawaiian shirts!! So try not to wear any of them in the next week or so, think of boring stripes or plaids instead, ok-aaa?? Smile
