Before we started today’s tutorial let’s understand how clipping masks actually work. 

What is Clipping Mask?

Basically, a clipping mask is a group of layers to which a mask is applied. The bottommost layer or base layer defines the visible boundaries of the entire group.

For example, suppose you have a shape in the base layer, a photograph in the layer above it, and text in the topmost layer. Now if you apply the clipping mask feature the photograph and text will appear only through the shape outline in the base layer.

So, let’s start…
