This tutorial was made in Adobe Photoshop CS5.1 using no images at all. Impressed?

Here's the preview:

Now try it out yourself..

1. Create a new Photoshop Document of 1200x1000.
2. Make sure your Primary color is Black, and your Secondary is white... Like so:

3. Go to Filter -> Render -> Clouds

4. Go to Filter -> Pixelate -> Mezzotint -> Make sure it's Long Lines.

5. Go to Filter -> Blur -> Motion Blur... have your settings like this:

6. Use the Gradient Tool and Select a Rainbow.

7. Create a New Layer.

8. Make a Rainbow across the Screen like so

9. On the Rainbow layer, make it an overlay like so:

At this point, your image should look like this:

For the next few steps, we'll be adding a few minor details.

10. Go to Filter -> Render -> Lens Flare -> Adjust it to how you want it.

11. Create a rectangle over the center and set the opacity to 40ish%

12. Create your text on the banner.

13. You're done. Upload it to show me how it looks.

Here's my final:
