Photoshop mask problem

When I create a masked image (blue) with a rounded rect, with the same rect as the background (red), the background shows through the corners of the masked image (see attached). How can I make it so no pixels show through?enter image description here


Based on the example image I think that I would do this with Clipping mask.

You could do something like:

  1. Create a base layer of any color. this should have the rounded corners and or other shapes.
  2. Create another two layers with blue and red rectangles in each one with the sides going past your base layer.
  3. Then in the layers panel while pressing Alt key, point in between your base layer and one of the rectangle layers vertically ( the sides that are touching ). Then click right there between them and you should have a clipping mask. Repeat this step with any additional colors / elements you might want to add to it.

Tip: I sometimes make Shape layer and then put a texture layer ( that fills the whole document ) into clipping mask with the Shape layer, that way I can resize the shape layer if needed and the texture just sits there and wont get disturbed.
