UI design problem

Hi Livecoders.

I am hoping you'll have some ideas for solving a UI design/coding problem.
My app lets users create simple presentation screens, one per card. The user
can import a picture and add a headline (text field) to the card.  And since
the user will sometimes want the text to be over the image, the text field
is always the top layer.

The problem is the text field often blocks the user from grabbing and moving
the image control below. (Both the field and image are meant to be movable.)

My many attempts to solve this have wandered into "rat's nest" territory, so
I'm hoping some of you will know a simple way to pass a mousedown from a
text field to an image control.
