    I like the map and coloring. I like the embossed stamp idea too.

    The compass rose looks like it was "drawn by a different pen" compared to the fonts and map outlines. The compass rose looks so thin, it looks added-on by a computer rather than hand, or a thinner pen-and-ink. On a map like this, maybe you can erase the cloned compass rose, and replace with hand-drawing a North South East West with a hand-done + marker. More thick like the text font.

    Here is another try at more realistic looking set up (a bigger version of the previous one):

    I've never been a huge fan of the continental shelf look, but this is probably one of the better versions of it I've seen. I really like the colors on this - very pretty without being over-the-top gaudy. Mountains and forests look good. River layouts look nice, but maybe slim them down a bit? Depending on the scale of the map, they look too wide.
