What cardstock do you use? I use different kinds of coloured cardstock. Used to favour white but it get brown spots after sometime so I stopped using pure white. Sometimes textured cardstock is a welcome choice to add more variation.
99% of my card bases are white unless I'm doing a dark card - then I use black. Its just easier and more economical. I buy a ream of white card stock, cut about 50 bases at a time and then I have them on hand.
I use mostly colored for the bases, but some of my cards are white or ivory. It just depends on my mood. I do add my own embossing more than using textured paper. I use that paper for panels or when I make embellishments.
I marked three - white; purecolour with texture; pure colour without texture. Whatever mood or occasion I'm in or doing depends on the base. All that said, white is my 50% use.
I believe you can mark whatever you use.
