Default Chalk Ink and Clear Stamps - stains

I recently bought some Colorbox Fluid Chalk Ink and I love the way it looks. But I used it on a clear stamp (a good quality stamp), and it stained it terribly. The ink was gray and the stamp is now black.

Is this just the way it is with chalk inks and clears? I'm already sworn off my Palette Noir with them, it blackened one of my stamps so badly.

The weird thing is - the stamp that I happened to use with the Charcoal chalk ink was a PTI stamp, and in the sheet of "instructions" that you always get rolled up with the index sheet it says that Nichole Heady likes to use chalk ink with her stamps (and Palette!):

"Both Palette and chalk inks are my first choice when choosing a medium to use in conjunction with clear stamps."

Do you get very bad staining with chalk ink and your clears? (Colorbox specifically?). And if you do, do you use it on them anyway or avoid it?
I have come to the conclusion that buying craft supplies and actually using them are two separate hobbies.
