Onion Skin Overlay Opaque Image Effect For Photo Camera?

I’m trying to find out if this bit of functionality is possible using Ionic (Android & IOs) and PhoneGap Build . It’s been done using purely traditional Android App creation but I am using Ionic.

I want to be able to take a picture while looking through another opaque existing image in order to help match or line up the new picture to the old image. In the final app the opaque image will be pulled and chosen from a list of photos probably hosted remotely. The resulting picture taken will not have any trace of the the opaque image that was used as an overlay guide to take the new picture. Is it possible? Maybe using the canvas?
