Artful Times challenge No 18 Anything goes

This challenge was for anything you fancied putting in. So, as I was making a fabric postcard depicting the beach, for a swap, I decided to put that in for the challenge.
I started of by cutting fabric into strips and placing them onto some pelmet vilene. The first bit I tackled was the sea. I placed some silk tops onto the fabric and free machined on top, getting darker at the top.
I then did some random sewing on the edge of the sea, coming onto the beach, in a darker sand colour. The pebble fabric was cut out and I did some free machine embroidery on that, plus some posts in brown.
The sky I used white wool for some clouds, well it is nearly always cloudy in the UK.
