Stampotique Challenge - Striped Background

Every picture tells two stripey stories

This is my 3rd Week as Guest DT For the fabulous Stampotique Stamps and Corrie is the host asking for a striped background but no patterned papers!

I had recently seen a tag done using the Lenticular technique and thought this was an ideal opportunity to try it

I trimmed a piece of A4 card making 8'' width  and scored and folder as a concertina every ½ Inch for the base of the structure

The first image I marked and painted ½ inch vertical stripes of grey and stamped Stampotique Fabulous and Jammin  onto card and coloured with Promarkers and glued down
Once dry cut into ½ inch strips and glued to one side of the concertina base

The second image I marked ½ inch horizontal stripes and painted black 
Stamped Curiosities and Jammin onto card and applied to the black and white striped background

Once dry cut into ½ inch strips and glued to the other side of the concertina base

The frame was made from a piece of 8" x 8" chipboard, with modelling paste stencilled and painted black and glued to the top ridges of the concertina

Overhead view shows both sides of the images
