In my opinion item no. 181539379 is unusable. The content (the clouds) can never be cleared from the grid system. Or you destroy the chess pattern and thus the clouds. I already bought another cloud package, that was usable without any problems.
The grid "shine through" is because of the cloud transparency. The grid is a layer that you can switch of.
That's what I thought, too. Everything is on one layer. Normally the grid is on one layer and the clouds on separate one.
That's what it looks like.
Your's different from mine:
What is your Illustrator version?
Wow! I'd wish it looks like that!
I use on two different PCs IllustratorCC 2019 latest version. On both PC I get the same result!
I am not certain what is at play here. I'm checking on it.
As I said, I DIDN'T get the same result AFTER OPENING the Ai File.
It depends if I open the file OUT OF ADOBE STOCK in AI or if I DOWNLOAD FIRST TO MY DESKTOP Computer and open it from there in AI.
THE BUG MUST BE AT THE SIDE OF ADOBE STOCK.
I DEFENITELY USE LATEST VERSION OF ILLUSTRATOR
In the meantime I checked if there's a difference between downloading from Stock to Desktop and open it in AI OR opening in AI from Stock to AI directly! You know what....IT IS! If I download it first from Stock and open it in AI from Desktop it looks exactly the same what you see! The screenshot above is what I get if opening directly from Stock. I don't think that's the way it should be. For something the CC Library is there in the applications. So I don't have to download everything.
While I'm at it:
I like a lot about Adobe Stock, but something annoys me. Why do I always get such small picture previews? Here you can take a good example from Unsplash or Pixabay, where I get a usable preview directly. I don't always want to download a preview or have to open it via panel in Photoshop, for example. This would make me much more efficient.

Re preview: have you tried scrolling up with the wheel of the mouse while holding down 'ctrl" on your keyboard? (I assume you're using Windows operating system.)
