Handmade Art Postcard

I haven't made a postcard in a long time, so I decided to join this fun swap, "Handmade Art Postcard". I decided to watercolor another sunset.... this time in 4" x 6" size, instead of my normal ACEO size (2.5" x 3.5"). 
What do you think?

Title: Orange Sunset
Date: October 7, 2014
Medium: Watercolor
Type: Postcard
Swap: Handmade Art Postcard

Here is the back.... It shows all the watercolor drops that made it to the other side. To add some character, I used an ink pad around the edges and back.
