Inspiration for hand painted florals

I have been browsing the net for some floral inspiration.  I would like to hand paint some florals based on the current 50s trend.  Cath Kidson is the obvious place to look but I thought I look else where and this is what I found -  amazing cakes decorated in hand painted florals.  The cakes are made by neviepie cakes and you can read her blog here.  http://amelieshouse.blogspot.co.uk/.  I love the gold baroque cake.  I would like to paint like this on paper never mind a cake.
