Other frames in the example above are one with a linen type liner (the white looks a little like a mat) and a standard frame from a local store.
Watercolor and pastel paintings require a bit more work to frame, but look beautiful with a mat and glass. Even a simple pencil or pen sketch will become "professional" looking with a frame and more so with a mat and frame. You can test this out easily by using a program like Photoshop (or even Microsoft Word) by adding a frame to your image.
