Try this:

If I understand you correctly, create a GIMP image with three layers.

- Top layer has the pattern of images.
- Middle layer has a heart image.
- Bottom layer has something or nothing.

- Turn off the top layer and lock it.
- Select just the heart on the middle layer. If you filled it with a solid colour you can select by colour. - Go back to the top layer. Turn it on and unlock it. You should see the heart outline on the top layer. - Delete the heart from the top layer. Your middle layer will show through the hole where the heart outline was. - Delete the middle layer and your bottom layer will show through. If you want to see right through to the transparency checkerboard, delete the bottom layer.

Hope that's what you want.

Subject: [Gimp-user] Erasing to background color

Thank you for this great group!

I have been stumped on a project that I have been working on all weekend.

I am attaching an image that is my inspiration. It is a McDonald's gift card
with the french friends and a heart in the middle.

I want to recreate this image with a pattern of images and then insert a heart image. Then, I assume that I can just somehow delete the heart image and have
that space now be clear to the transparent background of the image?

I know this is possible, but have no clue how to do. Please help me! Thank you so much in advance for your assistance!
