How to attach a piece of , say dark wood, to the back of a light wood that you have scrolled your pattern to. I thought of gluing but don t know how to keep the glue out of my pattern.

reads like youre wanting to put a backer on a scrolled piece.
if so, the way ive done it for hundreds of projects over 14 years with no problem is using medium CA glue. i lay the piece i scrolled backside up on a flat surface(table saw), run ca around the perimeter then a spot here and there making sure to put some on delicate pieces. then lay the backer on it and weight it down. couple minutes later its done. if theres squeeze out,which rarely happens any more, the CA dries clear and isnt noticable.
