You want to use the "clone tool" - teh one that looks like a stamp.
Pick it, hold control, and click on the portion of the image you want
to copy _from_, and procede to normal painting on the part of the
image you are copying _to_.
I prefere using it in the "aligned" mode (tool options).
You will find out that for better results you might want to pick a
soft brush, and possibly tweak of the opacity settings, depending on
the nature of your background.
