Mensagem: 

I see "sky of blue" and "sea of green" as poetic or literary forms, alternatives to the usual "adjective + noun" sequence.  I did a Google of "sky of blue" and got 35K hits, but I got about seven million hits for "blue sky".  For "sea of green" versus "green sea" the results were much less dramatic.  I do not recommend that you use these forms unless you are writing poetry or the lyrics to a song.
