Transparent Forms that only show a Label's text

Hi everyone,
I have a question that I hope can be answered.

Is there a way to create a borderless form, that has no backcolor
(transparent) that has a label (with no backcolor) that is showing?

In other words, is there a way to have text on a screen with nothing behind
it?

Some people may have seen this type of thing in the Winamp plugin called
Toaster.

Thanks all,

Timothy.
