What I currently able to do and have is with image overlay

image with problem
What I need is the  book overlay image (sample) has white foreground as seen below

what I needed
I have many overlay images(book, peridiocals, images, audio, video, maps etc) all with black foreground

see the sample overlay image I have is

current overlay image with black foreground,d, see the image after changing the foreground to white, it has become transperent overlay is not at all displayed

I had tried inverting foreground color to white for the overlay image, but it is not displaying as required
after making the overlay image with white foreground

current css is


.base:hover {

    .cardoverlay {
        visibility: visible!important;

.base:focus {

   .cardoverlay {
       visibility: visible!important;

reactjs code is

 return (
          <div  key={} className={`card base paper ${this.props.selected == ? ' selected': ''}`}
                 style={{width:dimension, height:dimension+50,overflow:"hidden"}} onClick={() => this.props.actions.viewItem(i)}>
              <img src={thumbnail} alt={i.title} className="card-img card-img-top"
             <img src={getOverlayImage(LOCAL_URL_PREFIX,i.type)} className="cardoverlay" style={{width:"200px",height:"160px",position:"absolute",
             <img src={i?.source?.brand} className="card-img-top" alt={i.source} style={{position:"absolute", left:"270px",
                top:"230px", bottom:"250px", right:"300px", width:"30px", height:"30px"}}/>
            <div className="card-body card-text base-text">
               <p style={{fontFamily:"verdana,sans-serif", fontSize:"0.75rem",fontStyle:"italic"}}> {restrictTo40Chars(i.title)} </p>
               <p style={{fontFamily:"verdana,sans-serif", fontSize:"0.75rem",fontStyle:"italic"}}> {display2ndLine(date,i.type)} </p>
