I recently compiled goldendict from source. To my dismay I discovered that there were no monochrome appindicator icons included. At the moment I am stuck with this:

I tried converting the icons to B/W using GIMP, but it still doesn't look quite right:

How can I modify the icons to fit with the rest of the theme?

These are the icons in question.

Here's the result:
