I am not sure, if I have understood your problem. Here is what I would
have preferred to do:

\documentclass[a4paper]{article}
\usepackage{graphicx,times}
\usepackage{xcolor,lipsum}
\usepackage{transparent}

\begin{document}

\pagecolor{blue!50}

\fcolorbox{red}{blue!50}{%
\parbox[t][3in][t]{3in}{%
\bfseries\transparent{.1}%
\color{blue}%
Blue and %
\transparent{1}%
transparent blue
\normalfont\lipsum[3]}}

\end{document}

Best regards
