Scrapping Outback - July Challenge

Scrapping Outback has a fabulous challenge each month...
"White with a Twist"
You must use white and at least one piece of chipboard, and of course, these great colours - easy right? You can also use a little black, if you like!
This month the team has added a bonus if you use the chipboard component in an interesting way.
This had me thinking... 

I started with Authentique "Lively" collection - 'Bright' & 'Spirited' - yes, old range, but the perfect shade of pink and orange!
Used one as the background piece...covered randomly with Prima 'white crackle paste' and the other had every 'orange' flower fussy cut from it!
While the crackle was still wet I spritzed a little Heidi Swapp 'Coral' and Prima 'Tangerine' and tipped the paper so it dribble 'everywhere' - fun!
The chipboard (bought from Georgia Heald's stash sale) was heat embossed with Stampin' Up! 'Tangerine Tango' and while it was still 'hot' sprinkled with some white Utee, reheated then spritzed with Lindys Stamp Gang 'Hottie Patottie Hot Pink' - also flicked around the page!
The round chipboard circle was smeared with Faber Castell 'Glass glitter bead gel' and while still wet (no  patience here!! haha) flicked with the Lindy's 'hot pink' the 'S' has been coloured with Izink 'Geranium' - a different way of using it?
Finished embellishing with a couple of Kaisercraft paper blooms in 'Coral', a velum and metal disc, white metal flower (from my friend Sharon), a snippet of lace doily, heart brad and lace bow!

And, another page for little Sienna's album!!
