[scribus] Highlighting elements of imported bitmap

I've imported some bitmaps of charts into a Scribus document and made an 
attempt at highlighting key features.

I tried to put filled coloured rectangles over them, but can't seem to 
get the right effect in that if it's 'on top' and opaque it covers the 
object of interest.

In the end I've settled for putting an unfilled rectangle over them 
giving this sort of effect.


Ideally I'd like the effect of putting a bit of yellow plastic over the 
typed page, so that from the underlying 'paper', black is black and 
white is filtered to yellow.

Is it possible to achieve this in Scribus, and if not, will 
it be in future ?

Cheers, J/.
