    As you mention layers, can we assume that you already have the crown and the heart on a layer of their own, respectively? Aug 11, 2018 at 6:19

1 Answer 1


If you have the crown and the heart as separate layers, duplicate the crown, but the copy on top, and erase most of it except where you want it to be above the heart.

If it's a single image, no way without redrawing things on a layer above. This said, these are straight lines, so it's not difficult:

  • Create a path (red line)
  • Sample the color of the crown
  • Add a new layer
  • Select>From path and bucket-fill the selection
  • Set the FG color back to black, remove the selection, and Edit>Stroke path, in Line mode, with a width of 1 px
  • With the eraser tool erase the two black segments at the bottom

enter image description here

Final result:
