    How can I use a halftone screen printing file to simulate the final output?

      Just a little history to help with the understanding.  I am working with a company that silk screens a pattern onto a solid color board.  The patterns are saved as .sct extension but are flattened.  I am trying to emulate the screening process by layering the halftone pattern over a solid color but can't seem to make it work.  The "white" that was filled in on the pattern is creating the issue.  If anyone knows how I can get this layer back to a transparency or any other trick to achieve the results I need, I would appreciate it.

       

      This is a small .png of the halftone file I am working with.  I am using CS5.

       

      Thanks,
