You can File->Open As Layers an existing image you have.
Then move that opened layer below your trophy layer.
or
Right Click in the Layers dialog then choose New Layer.
Move that layer below your trophy layer.
Add whatever details/colors you desire to it.

To make the text you create look engraved...
Create a text layer containing the text in the required font/size.
Then try one of the many Bevel/Emboss/Engrave filters out there (Google is your friend) Personally I like layerfx.py.
I am not sure what is in the standard Gimp now days as I have subsequently installed many filters. I think you will find a standard Bevel under the Filters->Distorts->Bevel. You may have to right click your text layer first and choose 'Alpha to Selection' before running the Bevel filter.

Let me know how you get on.

thanks alot Smile no further questions... for now lol
I notice you have not downloaded the zip file containing the xcf file with the full size trophies. Have you decided on a different image or approach for your trophies?
