A background color effect applied to a background image

I tried to apply a color overlay with transparency to the background image, the background image is displayed and hopefully the code is fine for this, but if anyone has a more efficient way to do this please share.

When I try to apply a background color with rgba values ​​and opacity nothing is displayed ...

Any suggestions?

.call-to-action {
color: #fff;
background: url(images/cta-bg.jpg) no-repeat center center fixed;
background-color: rgba(255, 255, 255, 0.5) !important;
-webkit-background-size: cover;
-moz-background-size: cover;
-o-background-size: cover;
font-size: 18px;
padding: 48px 12px;
text-align: center;

Use an immutable gradient as the second background image

JSfiddle Demo


div {
    width 200px;
    margin: 25px;
    border:1px solid grey;
    background-image: linear-gradient(to bottom, rgba(255, 0, 0, 0.5) 0%, rgba(255, 0, 0, 0.5) 100%), url(http://lorempixel.com/output/city-q-c-200-200-1.jpg);




U also need to mix it:

background-blend-mode: multiply;
