Why do you use the pretty much meaningless hex-names?
Do you create the Masks as RGB?
I resize these images, I noticed that there are color tone variations in the new one.
That depends on your Resample method (or Image Interpolation) settings.
One could address the effects with Adjustment Layers, though.
What are the exact pixel dimensions you need to create and do you originally create the Mask in the largest version?

Off the top of my head, you could use a Posterise Adjustment Layer to force the image to only use 3 colours? It's probably the anti-aliasing that's causing the issue. c.pfaffenbichler is right about the size of the image being important too. Always start with the biggest size and scale down as opposed to enlarging. Also, when you save the image you can use GIF to make sure that you only use 3 colours.

When one starts with the biggest version and downsamples with the Resample Method Nearest Neighbor there should be no anti-aliasing-like effect.
