    Could you upload it to a site like imageshack.us? we're having some internal issues and attachments aren't working.

    When you have your paths tool, and you have made your path... press Enter... Instant selection!

    OR you make a rectangle selection, fill it with blue, lower the opacity and then you use the perspective tool to make it a triangle-like form and then Filters > Distort > Curve bend. Now you make a nice wavy shape and you're done.

    devvv has a nice tutorial including that effect (German only though): <a class="postlink" href="http://gimpusers.de/tutorials/visitenkarte" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;">http://gimpusers.de/tutorials/visitenkarte</a>
