How to make this text transparent when inside image and colored with colors of that i
Hi, i have attached the image to makes it very clear on what i want to achieve.
I have a transparent layer of blue hands (Layer 1), and on top of it i have a layer of an other transparent image witch is a text and contain the word (Two hands) in black color(Layer 2).

What i want to do is :
1 - Give a transparent color to the text (Layer 2) that is on the top of the non transparent region of the (layer 1).
2 - Give the the colors of hands to the text (Layer 1) located in the transparent erea of (Layer 2).

After this operation, the color black will disappear and the text in the second layer will be transparent inside the (layer 1) and have the blue color of (layer 1) outside of it.

I know this task is easy to do with Gimp but for a newbie like me i don't know how to proceed and looks complicated.
Thank you very mush for any help.
