Valentine’s map for my daughter

It’s fun every now and then to play with Stamen Design’s Map Stack. Tonight as I was playing with it in part to wind down from a long work week, my 3-year-old requested a pink and purple map.

So, a pink and purple map. I can do that:

The cool thing about Map Stack, is I can share a link for my creation (click on the link above image), but I can also now embed this in a QGIS map.;color:$ff3030%5Bmask=!mapbox-water,comp=multiply,alpha=50%5D;toner-hybrid;color:$8629a6%5Bmask=!mapbox-water,comp=multiply,alpha=50%5D;color:$60c9fe%5Bmask=mapbox-water,comp=multiply,alpha=60%5D/2/30.1/-48.3

I can embed the link to that map in a specially crafted XML file that can be loaded in QGIS or many projects that use the GDAL library:
