Here are my two for Changing Seasons. I chose this set because it can be used for either a man or woman depending on the colors. The techniques used can be a simple or complicated as you desire. I've seen this set where the birds in each image were spotlighted, and I've used it myself just stamped on vellum and mounted on colored paper. I think Earth Elements is the choice with so much wood, trees, and birds. I did cheat and used creamy caramel ink without using the paper.
