Default Water color paper; white paper??

Ok-

Sorry for the weird title thread but can't really think of something good to use. Here is my dilemma; I LOVE using watercolor paper when watercoloring a stamped image. It just make everything SOOO much better, between the blending and the water. HOWEVER, the color of the paper is almost vanilla/cream looking. SOO, for those of you that use the Strathmore pad paper, 1) do they make the watercolor paper in a WHITE color? 2) if you are NOT using a cream base, how do you mat the image onto the card to make it look "right" when using WHITE base?? That is my BIGGEST problem..it just looks awkward/weird!! I am attributing this to the watercolor paper COLOR..being creamish.

Also, I realize I could use a vanilla card base, but that's not in my budget right now as I make mass amounts of cards for school. Is the papertrey white decent to watercolor on?? I am looking for a WHITE watercolor paper that's decent. THANKS!!
