Default Stamping to color on watercolor paper - none of my blacks are working!

I have tried Memento, Palette Noir and India Ink. They are not stamping cleanly or very blackly on watercolor paper. I also have some Stonehenge Vellum Finish (nice and smooth but uncoated) and no luck with it.

I am going to be using watercolors or Prismas, so I don't have to worry about the alcohol ink bleed issue. Using regular CS won't work because the water degrades it so quickly and I use the mineral oil blending technique with Prismas and it doesn't seem to work well on regular CS.

I can't use Stazon.

Is it me, or have others had trouble getting good crisp images for coloring using the inks I'm using? Is my choice to go to an oil based ink like Ranger or Versafine?
I have come to the conclusion that buying craft supplies and actually using them are two separate hobbies.
