Buttons – Full Color? Limited Color?

OK, I’m still working on the new site design, and I’m starting the little graphics for the left navigation buttons.

Cartoon compatriot Mike Lynch uses a limited palette now and again, and I thought these graphics might be a good place to try that. Plus I’m wondering if I shouldn’t keep closer to the site’s colors. (Again, I’m woefully color challenged.)

So, here’s some looks at the first button’s resting state:

Full color


Limited color


And it’s rollover state:

Full color


Limited color


Any strong thoughts one way or another?
