I'm going through Eran Stern's Promo Breakdown - Part 1 tutorial. When I use my pen tool to create a line, I don't see a stroke. Any reason why?

Um..... have you applied the Stroke Effect and assigned it to that particular mask?

I'm following Eran's tut step by step. I created the layer, applied the effect, toggled my view to see the mask, clicked the pen tool and holding shift, I started to create the line. As far as assigning it to a particular mask, I guess i haven't since it wasn't explained that i needed to do this.

,,,or you're mistakenly making a shape and not a mask?
