SCS Falliday Fest - trying Bokeh

This challenge, part of the 2 week long Falliday Fest at SplitCoastStampers, is to use the Bokeh technique - with a twist.  The twist is to use the white highlights only outside the chosen shape.  I colored the entire piece with watered down blue reinker.  I then masked stars, sponging white ink around them for a shimmery light effect.  This photo looks like I could have been a bit heavier with the white, but IRL I like the look.  The image is QKR stampede, and the sentiment is 7Gypsies.
Sketch #252:   SketchSaturday
Any:    Simon Says Stamp Wednesday
Theme: stamps, sponging:    Stamplorations.

What clever idea to use stars instead of the usual circles for your card.
