Answer:

The Idea Requestor/Creator gives you the rights to view and edit the Idea General properties page and also submit the Idea for approvals. 
But just being a requestor/creator does not give you the view/edit access to the Description and Financial Summary page. This will have to be granted separately through instance rights. 
However, the Idea manager will have access to view and edit not only the general page of the Idea but also the Description and Financial Summary page. 

Additional rights are required to staff the Idea or manage the hierarchy of the idea.
The Idea Manager will require additional 'Idea - View Financial' access to view the financial details on the 'Settings' page.
