Can't use green or blue screen, then what?

As the title says, I'm using both green and blue in my shot. What color should I use? I was thinking about pink but was concerned about the skin color of my characters in my stop motion film. Any thoughts?

Depending on the lighting scenario and what will be replaced in the background, black or white can be viable candidates as well.

At first it sounds like a task for Mocha (or RotoBrush if you're brave), but as others have indicated perhaps more details of the shot are in order. The ONLY reason for having a bg of a particular color is to facilitate creating a clean mask or alpha channel. If your foreground subject is a mime wearing striped B&W clothes, in clown white make-up & wearing a red tam, you could use an amethyst bg. for that matter. The point being, really examine what is specifically needed to accomplish the task.
