It's all a matter of preference... I will often stamp the black or sepia ink off one time before coloring in my image, because I don't want the dark outline. I'm looking forward to the new paler shades of Memento ink. I like the Sahara Sand for outlines too, and sometimes use the Pear Tart or a similar pale green for florals. GypsyRoseStamper is right - it is the chemical makeup of the ink that makes it stand up to solvent ink.

Some examples from my gallery of what I'm talking about:
