 Make Label Text background (default color) transparent using tkinter in python
In reference to the earlier question, I am able to put a background image in the frame but now the major issue is that Label text is displaying with default background which I need to make transparent.

As per other references question tk.Canvas is the best option but is there any other way to make the background of text transparent using tk.Label, I use root.wm_attributes option but is making the Text transparent but not the Background Right now My display looks like as mentioned in the attachment.

import tkinter as tk
from tkinter.filedialog import asksaveasfile
from tkinter import messagebox
from PIL import ImageTk, Image

class SampleApp(tk.Tk):
    def __init__(self):
        self._frame = None
        self.ard_stat = read_json(JSON_PATH)

    def switch_frame(self, frame_class):
        """Destroys current frame and replaces it with a new one."""
        new_frame = frame_class(self)
        if self._frame is not None:
        self._frame = new_frame

class StartPage(tk.Frame):
    def loopCap(self):
        with open(JSON_PATH) as json_file1:
   = json.load(json_file1)
        if['status'] == 'ACTIVE': #and (['RH_img']!= 'null' or['LH_img']!= 'null')
            a = self.text.set(['status'])
            b = self.text1.set(['RH_cnt'])
            c = self.text2.set(['LH_cnt'])
            d = self.text3.set(['barcode'])
            return self.text, self.text1, self.text2, self.text3,

    def next_save(self):
        new_string =['barcode']
        new_folder = os.path.join(DATA_PATH,new_string)
        if os.path.exists(new_folder):
            #print("Folder Already Exists If Condition")
            tk.messagebox.showinfo("Info", "Folder Already Exists")
            #print("Folder Already Exists")
            #tkMessageBox.showinfo("Info", "Folder Already Exists")
            #print("Make Directory Else Condition")
            json_dict = read_json(JSON_PATH)
            json_dict.update({"frontend_status": "True"})
            dump_to_json(json_dict, JSON_PATH)
            for i in range(0,len(data)):
                folder_name = os.path.join(DATA_PATH, new_string, data[i])
                files = [('All Files', '*.*'),
                         ('Python Files', '*.py'),
                         ('Text Document', '*.txt')]
                file = asksaveasfile(initialdir=folder_name, filetypes=files, defaultextension=files)
            json_dict = read_json(JSON_PATH)
            json_dict.update({"frontend_status": "False"})
            dump_to_json(json_dict, JSON_PATH)

            self.master.after(500, self.loopCap)

    def __init__(self, master):
        self.master.geometry("1000x700+%d+%d" % (((self.master.winfo_screenwidth() / 2.) - (1280 / 2.)), ((self.master.winfo_screenheight() / 2.) - (720 / 2.))))
        self.master.config(bg='powder blue')
        #myvar = self.master
        Frame1 = tk.Frame(self.master)
        Frame1.pack(side="bottom", fill="x", pady=10, anchor='w')
        Frame2 = tk.Frame(self.master)
        Frame2.pack(side="left", fill="both", pady=10, anchor='w', expand=True )
        photo = tk.PhotoImage(file="images/BG.jpg")
        label = tk.Label(Frame2, image=photo)
        label.image = photo, y=0)
        tk.Label(Frame2, text='  Decal Check  ', font=('arial', 25, 'bold'), bg='powder blue',
                 fg='black', anchor='w').grid(column=0,pady=2)

        b = tk.Button(Frame2, text="Add New Files", command= self.next_save)
        b.grid(row=11, column=1, pady=5, sticky='w')

        self.master.after(500, self.loopCap)

if __name__ == "__main__":
    app = SampleApp()
Suggestion will be very helpful

wxpython has a SetTransparent command. tkinter does not, but I found this which may be helpful:
