Sounds like you're doing everything right. I think the problem is with the printer.Is the word LaserJet or Color LaserJet on your printer? That's how HP calls their laser printer. OfficeJet means it's ink, which won't work.The fact that the ink washes off with water sounds strange to me; Either it is in fact ink, and then it will not work to make stickers, or something is wrong with your printer and/or paper.
I don't think it would work with ink... with coloured pencils maybe, but I have not tested that...
I haven't tried that myself, but I don't think so... it needs to be something which remains on top of the paper and doesn't get absorbed by the paper like markers or ink...
I can imagine two possible problems: Either you're really not rubbing enough or the glue of your tape doesn't like water. You could try to wet a bit of your tape and rub it without applying any paper. If it turns cloudy, the tape is the problem.
