Multiply blending mode not working as expected

Recommended Posts

Hi, I would like some help with a hover effect that is not working as intended. 

The password to the site is 'pineapple'

The list items section didn't quite fit my needs. So I placed a text block with a background, and then a transparent button over the top to make clickable cards. Using the below CSS I created a hover effect that changes the button from transparent to white on hover. I set the blend mode to multiply, so it theoretically shouldn't impact the colour of the black text but that isn't happening.

/*tertiary button hover*/

.sqs-block-button .sqs-block-button-element--small {opacity:0}

.sqs-block-button .sqs-block-button-element--small:hover {background-color: white; background-blend-mode: multiply;}


I'm unsure what is causing this, as the text itself isn't in a button and shouldn't have any default hover effects. I would like the text to remain black.

I'm open to hearing other strategies for making this design work if my current approach is the issue. Thanks in advance for the help!
