Have you tried the following:
1. Create the arrow in black.
2. While the arrow is still selected, use the Color button in the Drawing
Tool window to select White.
3. Try either selecting the TIFF and selecting "Send to Back" in the
left-hand menu of the expanded Drawing Tool window, or selecting the
arrow and "Bring to Front". One of those should work.
