As you can see in the attached file i am trying to make an image overlap with a Grey box. So far I have created the Grey box using a div and giving it a css background property of Grey. the problem that i am having is that when i try to position the image overtop of the grey DIV, it pushes the grey box down instead of on top. Also if you refer to the attached there is some text that will need to overlap the grey part as well. I am sure there is one solution for both of these problem.
By the way, all of these elements are contained in a fixed width wrapper using css.
