    Can a stroke on top of an object be used to make clip through the object?

      Can a stroke on top of an object be used to make clip through the object?  So that transparency can been seen through the object.


      I have a square that has a stroke on top of it.  I would like to see the transparent background behind the square in the area occupied by the stroke.  Example below:

      I would like the white area (which was created using the paintbrush tool and applying a stroke) to show the transparent backgroud behind the red square - or whatever gets put behind the square.


      I have read and tried many tutorials and suggestions from the forum with no success. (Group knockouts, Make Opacity Mask, etc...)  I even created a much more simple red square with a default stroke and still could not get transparency through the red square.


      I am probably just missing something.


      Is this possible using a stoke?  Anyone able to help?


      Thanks,
