Make a Splash - House Mouse

This is my first House Mouse challenge! I have several of the stamps that I won from an ebay auction years ago but have only used them one time before this. I love the cute little guys and this particular image is the reason I bought the set in the first place. Since I'd never used the stamp and it feels like a "new" stamp to me I also decided to try a "new" technique (for me) - I used colored pencils and gamsol mineral spirits to color the image. I really like the resulting pastel colors. With practice I might actually get good at this - but for now I think this was a good first try.
