Copic Markers + Krylon Fixatif = Bleached Marker

I've been working on Christmas cards that have Copic coloring on them as well as areas where I put down glue and sprinked glitter over it, but the glitter wasn't quite staying on the image as well I would like so I decided to seal it.

Having used Krylon fixatif to seal chalked images, and having a big can of it, it seemed like the obvious choice, and it seemed to work ok at first. After it dried a few hours, all of the Copic marker areas looked like part of the color had been bleached out of them.

The next attempt was using a product called Super Seal. This works as long as you put a very light coat on and start off your piece of work. If there is too much of it, it is able to get the Copic ink to start bleeding into other areas, which suggests part of it is alcohol based.
