It took me a moment to realize the gray lines outlined the continent. Once I saw that, it became much more effective. I wonder if you have played with shading the water/land any.

It's really pretty.

How did you decide upon the termination points of the grey lines? In Spain and Greece it looks like you went to the boundary, but not so in Italy or Great Britain. It works, but I wonder if you had a method.

Thanks! I tried to end the line when the coutry behind it isn't important for this map. But mostly I just went with what resembled the countries shape - in Italy's case it looked weird when I drew it further down.
