Here is my step by step if you would like to give this card of something similar a go.

Remove the white clarity sheet and keep to one side. Then stamp the double sided Clarity adhesive sheet with the poppy stamp and an archival ink Recover the stamped image with the white wax sheet.

Turn the sheet over and carefully with a craft knife  score the brown sheet to make a sun, mountain and to trace around the flowers of the stamped image.

Taking single section at a time, and using perfect pearls and a soft make up brush, brush the perfect pearls over the exposed glue.

In this case I brushed biscuit to highligh certain areas of the poppies where the light would hit it and a little blue for the shady areas. I also used a darker green on the small shoots.
