First stage the background. It was not all that difficult, I all ready had a PNG image of Relic that had a clear layer.
Simply needed to load the background into gimp and copy and paste Relic's PNG as a new layer and move it to the position I wanted.
Of course I wound up with this as Relic's name is always in Blue. It's just his thing.
And to be able to use it on other backgrounds before closing out of gimp you need to add a transparency layer before exporting it as a PNG (JPG does not support transparency).
The End result:
