Linda is the artwork you  provided a scan of a graphite sket ch?  From what you describe the designer has a colored background and they want the sketch instead of a grayscale to strip out to another ink color, is that correct?

There are two possibilities: if I remember correctly you may drop an image file TIF grayscale and then have it take on a specfic pantone or ink color within INDesign.  If you have already created this in AI or PSD and the sketch is on one layer and your colors another layer you may be able to create two separate files.  Or if the designer can provide the specific pantone color you csn create the grayscale graphite drawing to a duotone  PSD  and export the PSD as a CMYK TIF.   Again  not seeing the actual desin, not knowing if this is a spot color or full color print process changes how you woukd troubleshoot.   Also if monitors, scanners and printers are not color calibrated and color profiles are not saved with your file there will be a tendecy in color shifts within printing.
