Mmm... Are we talking about low amount of metallic ink on top
something to, er, spice things up? :)

How about converting selection in GIMP to a path, saving the path to
SVG, importing it to Scribus (to a new layer) and filling it with a
metallic spot color with low opacity?

Depends on your reply to the suggestion above :)
