Transparency Question

Transparency Question
So I just made a Signature in GIMP, and it involves Transparency, So that the Gradient shows well, is there any background I could put in there so that the Gradient wouldn't look horrible? Without affecting the Gradient, I have the layers set to a bunch of different types, and when I add a background color, everything goes hay-wire and changes colors. So is there anyway I could add a background without it affecting the layers above it?
Image See how the white just looks weird as the background? Is there something I could put as a background that wouldn't affect the layers above it and make them change colors?

Sorry if this is confusing, it is very hard to explain

I added a screenshot of what I am hoping to get, something like that, so that it will not look so bad, or could you guys suggest a background that would match... if nothing else.

RE: Transparency Question
Well because of the layer types I have on, when I change the background color, it changes the Gradient color, which changes the layer above that, and so on. That is the only reason I Have problems

Is there any way that I could make a background that would not affect layer types? So that I could put black at the back, and it wouldn't change everything?

RE: Transparency Question
Yeah I guess that could work, although I am liking the black, so this topic can either be locked or just left to die now, thanks for the help
