Default Help needed with Christmas ornaments

I have recently been attempting to make some Christmas ornaments similar to ones I saw in the gallery. They were done by stamping on acetate with Stayz-on and then coloured with Sharpies. I thought it would be a cool craft to do with my students at Christmas. My problem: when I colour the stamped images with the Sharpies, the Sharpies are taking the Stayz-on ink right off the acetate. I have tried letting it dry for several minutes before colouring and heat setting. Any ideas on how to fix this or what I am doing wrong?

Don't color the side you stamped with StazOn, color the back side. This will also let the image's outlines stay vivid.

Can you use Fabrico Markers instead of Sharpies?
