How could I clip out the yellow part of the image below?

enter image description here

Here is what I tried.

  1. Select the yellow part and the image itself.

  2. Go to Object->Clip->Set. And here is what I am getting.

As you can see my approach does not work.

So, I tried to reorder the layers of the image and the yellow part (move one above the other). Also tried to change the order in which I select the image and yellow part before clipping. All this did not help.

What else may I try and what could I miss here?

If you are trying to punch out the yellow shape from the brown, then you need to use Path > Difference. For it to work you must select only two objects - the brown shape to be cut, and the yellow shape only.

Here's a simplified example
