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:

Your cards are beautiful! What a great idea to stamp off for a lighter outline. Duh!!!! Why didn’t I ever think of that? Thanks for sharing. Now I know!
