Default Fresh Ink/ Amuse ink comparison to PTI colors?

I've searched and can't find an ink comparison chart for these inks. Can someone please help me out?

Thanks.

Here's the comparison chart that was created by Jennifer K over on the PTI forum, with input from a bunch of people. Lots of different ink brands on here, including Amuse and Fresh Ink.

I have closely compared the inks on the chart that are listed as being a comparison for the PTI Berry Sorbet and have come up with this conclusion:
Pink Grapefruit is way too light. Scarlet is too red. Calypso Coral doesn't match at all, in my opinion. I don't have access to CTMH or Amuse, but Worn Lipstick comes the closest, although it is a lot pinker. To remedy this I layered Worn Lipstick Distress ink with Tattered Rose Distress Ink and that made it a very close comparison to Berry Sorbet. This is the ink combo I'm going with for now.
I'm going to keep playing with this sweet little chart to see if I can get any closer to these colors...yeah I probably have too much time on my hands! lol

Thanks for the Worn Lipstick/Tattered Rose suggestion for a match for Berry Sorbet!
