Convert your image to greyscale, then convert it to Duotone. Select Tritone, and pick your 3 colors from the swatches. Then make a new document 3 pixels high, and one wide with a transparent background. Make the top pixel black. Select all, and define it as a pattern. Go back to your colored image, make a new layer, fill it with the pattern. Adjust the color of that layer as you see fit.
