Default In Search Of Magenta...

Does anyone know where I can find a nice, bright magenta-pink colour for ink/cs/embellishments? Hard to describe in words, but I have this sweater that was called 'raspberry' I think, and it's just the loveliest, happiest radiant magenta colour. It makes me smile whenever I see it, and I want to be able to create things with that colour! I would say it's somewhere between Melon Mambo and Rich Razzleberry, closer to the Mambo side of the spectrum. I have PTI's Raspberry Fizz, which is more of a hot pink, and also their Autumn Rose, which is far too dusty and dark for what I'm looking for. Same with SU!'s Rose Red- it's close, but not quite bright enough. I'm wondering if MFT's Razzle Berry would be near it? I almost hope not since their shipping to Canada is over the edge for me! But man, I'd love to find that colour to play around with!
Thanks for your help everyone!

There's a colour called Magenta Hue in the Ranger Archival range - I managed to find a card online that has that colour combined with Distress Picked Raspberry so maybe you can judge whether it's close to what you might want (I would say Picked Raspberry is towards the hot pink end of the scale) - it's here.

Good luck finding something that suits!

ColorBox have an ink called Magenta - it's what I would call a little deeper than raspberry juice. But if you're looking for cardstock too, you probably want a company that produces both? Just mentioning it because I love the ColorBox colour. I have it in their pigment range, not sure if it comes in chalk as well.

Thank you Joanne and Sabrina for your suggestions! I would be thrilled to find the ranger archival magenta, since then I could stamp it on fabric too. I have to giggle whenever I see that "Picked Raspberry" ink mentioned; I can't read it without seeing "pickled raspberry"!
