Hey fellow Email Marketers!

I have been experimenting with some image backgrounds and I noticed something while testing in Litmus. Why does the text not overlap the image? It just gets pushed down below the image. I'd love to hear your thoughts on this!

I have done some research of my own and all I've heard on the web is just to avoid this design, but I'd like to try and make it work!

Here's my Litmus test: https://litmus.com/checklist/emails/public/7dad6ff

Thanks so much! I look forward to hearing from you all.
