INVERT TO DELETE

Recently I tried to explain these steps but found it's so difficult to explain in words so I thought I'd show with ss's.
Usually a mask and tubes are on separate layers, but in this case, I didn't add a layer before adding my cloud tubes and the clouds are directly on the mask layer.
It worked out fine, because I didn't want the mask outside the frame anyway.lol.
But here is how I removed all the outside stuff and left only the tubes inside the frame.

My steps to this point were, new transparent image.
I flood filled with white.
New layer flood filled with yellow, and applied a mask.
Applied auto cloud tubes and copy & pasted my mouse tubes on as a new layer.
This is what it looks like:

I want to remove everything outside the frame.
So here are the steps to achieve that result.

Using your magic wand, click inside the frame.
