If the icons were SVG or with using some erstwhile Cairo magic, you
could overlay the watermark and fade into them. Maybe like

foreach emblem
	water_down_color (emblem)
	gradient (emblem, down, transparent)
	move (down)
	group (emblems, emblem)

scale (emblems, the_right_size)

Alternatively, just choose the first watermark. :)
