if you're not opposed to bitmap applications, and want to stick to OSS 
... have a look at the GIMP. There you can work with layers in a 
gazillion different ways...

If you're into vector imaging, you could have a look to Inkscape too. I 
don't know if it's actually possible in that app either.

I remember in Corel Draw it's one of the advanced features (lenses).

Anyhow, in Inkscape you could place your text... invert the text and use 
that inverted text as "pattern" to fill the logo.
It's not really and "and" function" but the result is equal.

I'm not that familiar yet with Scribus as graphic application, I believe 
its strenght lies in the DTP-capacity. For graphics design I'll be 
tending to Inkscape.
