I haven't had time to really dig deep but I would not apply any inks to 
the image. I just brought a png file that was made in PS with no 
background(checkerboard) into REV put it over a bunch of text and 
images and perfect translucency.

Is that what you wanted? if not please explain.

If it is, send me the image and I will see. I do have a pretty heavy 
background in image manipulation.
