Well, why don't you expand the mask and give it a shot. Are you using gradients? (I Believe that gradients don't work in brushes, at least the old version of Illustrator I have)

Select just your object with the mask. Go to Pathfinder and locate the "Crop" button and click. That should do the trick.
