Has anyone crossed BV and carbon rili?

Has anyone tried to cross a blue velvet with a carbon rili? If so what were the results. I am considering it to try and increase the blue in my carbons. What do you think?

I did and got mostly wild coloration, some greenish some greyish. Also had a couple throwback cherries, one blue body red rili, one clear body red rili and a couple almost solid black.

I'll try to post pics of the different offspring later when I get off of work!

I'm betting that the second generation would have some pretty interesting colors. If there was some recessive genes, those likely wouldn't show up in the first gen, but the babies of the first gen might have them.
