The problem is that your image is scaled down to fit the configured icon size for that label.
The configured size is a square, while the icon is not, so it's heavily padded.
It should work after you configure the icon size to be of a similar shape rectangle, ideally the same size;
The name of the icons size property for that menu icon is
panel-applications-menu - you could add
:panel-applications-menu=48,24 to the config key
