texturing - stencil - in 2.76

HI artists…

I am now confused, the stenciling option in texture paint is not working for me…

The character is UV unwrapped, texture applied and I’d done texture painting also.

But when I tried to stencil, it is not working…

what could be wrong?

I’m using BL 2.76

Is your texture selected in the Texture slot ?
Is your texture not showing in the viewport ?
Is the texture not being painted ?
If the stencil texture not showing it may be out of view, try dragging it
What settings are you using ?
What brush are you using, try Draw brush
Ensure the cursor is in the viewport to see the stencil
