Workaround for mutliple backgrounds in IE7 / IE8

rush it
P: 18
The site I'm working on is in Wordpress. There is one small image included in the page through the CMS. Through CSS I'm trying to get a white background to display, then a watermark type of image over that. Of coure, looks great on all browsers except for IE7 and IE8. Neither background shows. The small image through the CMS does display correctly.

Since CSS2 doesn't support multiple backgrounds, I've been researching different workarounds to display them in IE7 and IE8. I've tried psuedo-elements, filters, adding divs for the second background and styling that, and I can't get anything to work. I know at some point I may have to accept the fact that I won't be able to get it to work, but I'd like to exhaust all possibilities first.

What have any of you used in this instance? I know, IE sucks, but I have to support it. Thanks.

One of our senior developers rewrote our main style sheet and now the site looks fine in all browsers. The sheet wasn't written right in the first place. No wonder I was having problems with IE7 and IE8. This was the first project I've been on with a custom template. Sure learned a lot.
