I wouldn't go for a robin's egg blue with that base, it's bound to turn out at least a bit green, and not as vibrant. Could be nice results, but won't be robin's egg no matter what you do, I'd say. Best luck would be to go for some kind of warm color shade: think reds, oranges, or other Fall colors.

Good luck, I hope we get to see pics of the finished product.

‎"There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all of time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and it will be lost. The world will not have it. It is not your business to determine how good it is nor how valuable nor how it compares with other expressions. It is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly, to keep the channel open. You do not even have to believe in yourself or your work. You have to keep yourself open and aware to the urges that motivate you. Keep the channel open."
