I'm new at Photoshop, but I'm trying to use clipping masks and stroke to design a logo. I have the text with a simple black stroke like this:text example with just the stroke

And I can add a clipping mask to the text WITHOUT including the stroke like this: text example with clipping mask and stroke

What I want to accomplish is having the clipping mask over the original text like in the second photo, AND have the clipping mask over a SECOND stroke (not the black one), like this; ideally the clipping mask would be over the original text and over the lighter blue stroke while leaving the black one visible. I can't figure out if there is a way to do this at all. text example with clipping mask, one black stroke, and a larger outer stroke

  • You'll need either multiple layers or to create a selection of the black stroke, so it can be added/removed to/from any clipping mask. This might help with the second option. – Scott May 29 '20 at 23:40
  • @Scott Thank you, that helped! I figure it out! – Ava May 30 '20 at 0:37
