Press your stamp into the ink pad and stamp the bead.
Yep, that's my whole tutorial and all there is to it. The ink is permanent and will withstand normal wear and is even water-resistant. I only stamped one side, if you stamped on the back it will show through and that could used to create a nice effect. You could do an image on one side and words on the other.
I love the soft matte beach-glass look of the resin with the images. I picked up all my resin from Natural Touch Beads at Bead & Button last year. They have a great website with tons of colors and shapes.
You can stamp on any of the shapes, but I like the these flat coin style beads, they show off the images more. I will warn you, order more beads than you think you will need - they are so much fun to make and you'll run out of the larger beads before you are done playing!
These are my favorites, I love the icy blue look of the beads. I could see them matched up with rock crystal and rhinestone beads for some winter-inspired sparkle.
