Making your subway art canvas color pop: Cream or White?

Cream or White? 

Can you tell which is which from the top photo to the bottom? 

Choosing a fabric for a canvas can be tricky when all you have to go on is a photo. 

What do you think for these aqua, black and silver threads? 

More pop with Cream or White or can you simply not notice the difference?

(When the Canvas is complete I will come back and link it so you can see the final result. This client and I worked together to choose the right scheme with some quick emails and photo sharing!).
