I believe the reason you can't color directly on your stamps with copics is because the ink dries too fast or maybe it is the alcohol evaporating too fast.

Gurus...please correct me if I am wrong.
No need for correction as your explanation is accurate. The ethanol from the Copic ink will evaporate almost instantly, leaving the pigments in your rubber stamp. To reactivate those pigments, you will need to spray the stamp with alcohol, and quickly apply it to your paper.
