I would use the Pattern feature. Just save your blue image as a pattern (Edit > Define Pattern), then fill your C with it...


Even better: allow greater control using layer mask!



Open both the image side by side Active the C image Click the Magic Wand tool (Press W) Go to Layer panel Hold Ctrl and click on the thumbnail

enter image description here

Click on the other image (Blue) Select All > Copy Click on the 1st image (C image) Go to Edit > Paste Into (shift+ctrl+V) And Adjust the image to fit in the shape
