Tulip Header Tutorial  
Going from this: flowers to this: step 11.

1. Crop your image, resize, sharpen, whathaveyou. I went with a 900x300 size for my header, and chose not to sharpen at all, because I wanted a very soft image.
step 1

2. Duplicate your base, set to Screen at 100%.

3. Create a new fill layer, color #ebebeb, set to Burn at 100%.
step 3

4. Create a new fill layer, color #013d70; duplicate it twice (for a total of three layers). Set the bottom two layers to Screen, set the top to Subtract, all at 100%. (Photoshop/PSP users, this step is essentially an exclusion layer)
