I used the pen tool to make a basic graphic in foreground. Then created a background using the blend tool with three different colors.

Then with both objects I made a clipping masks and it looks like this.

Instead of the clipping mask occurring on the line it is somehow being created in between the lines. This problem seems basic but for some reason I can't figure out the problem.

  • It looks like an open path and the "strikeout" is an auto-attempt to close the path for the mask. Try converting the text to an outline (rather than a stroked path) before making the clipping mask?
