    making a clipping mask with a complex, custom shape

    r_tist Level 1

      Hi,

       

      I have a graphic of a footprint, and I am trying to use it to mask of a photograph below. When I do the usual steps, it is not working and causing everything to go transparent...my photo, completely vanishing. I'm wondering if it is something to do with the complexity of the footprint vector - it has floating elements that are distanced away (for example, the toes are not attached to the foot portion). Could this be what's throwing it off?

       

      How can I get this footprint vector graphic to function as a cohesive mask?

       

      Thank you!
