Clipping mask fills outline, not inside

Hi,

 

I'm coming back to PS after many (many) years away.   I have a number of shapes (not PS shapes, but pngs exported from a vector editing program) which I would like to fill with wooden texture backgrounds.

 

I've been through a number of tutorials that show how this should work, but when I do it the outline of my image gets filled with the image, not the inside.

 

pet-tags.png here is the 'shape' I want to fill, and blank.png is the texture I want to fill it with, but when I try I get the effect shown in filled-outline.png.

 

My ideal scenario is that I fill the shape with the wood texture and am then able ot remove the black outline from the pet-tags.png.

 

Can anyone help?

Hi

First fill the shape with any color (white OK)

Then use the wood picture as a pattern and add a pattern overlay to the picture and a stroke

But the size is very very small and it would be better to have a larger wood image to make the pattern (since you always can reduce it) in order not to get a repeated squares filling.

Also it would be better to have a little extra margin around the shape
