Why don't you have a go? Even if it's not done as a .gif, I think some other formats can be converted.

Well, if you take my original banner



and then add the ideas of Big Ada and boatmadman, you end up with something like this......



again the main background blue is just there temporarily ....   :D

Actually, when it's up top it would probably look better this way round....  :((

For reference, they look different again when placed on a background, and I've added a blank section below to copy and paste, if anyone wants it...

This is weird, I'm quoting myself but I need to clarify something...

The background sample I posted, was purposely larger than the size Martin specified. I did it like this, so that if somebody made a heading of the correct size (450 x 60), as shown by all of Mike's (artistmike) designs, they could drop it onto a larger section of background to get the overall effect.
Hence the reason I also included an example of a design I'd previously posted (with a transparent background), to show the difference it made when dropped onto the blue bar.

I've attached an updated version with a faint frame indicating the maximum extent of a proposed design.
