I'd want to avoid two layers of water proofing as much as possible. When you mention "fabric" I'm not entirely sure what you mean there, Shane.

The liquid water proofers need a reinforcing fabric...

Shane, it does sound as though the mud was a little bit dry.

If this were mine and I was going to cover the pan with membrane, and since those large voids near the curb appear pretty deep from...

In the picture below I'd start my slope at either the red line, or maybe 6 to 12...

Shane, offer us a quick and dirty birds eye view drawing of the shower foot print, its measurements, and note where the drain is and where the shower head(s) is.

Perfectly fine to embed your cement board into the top mud layer, Shane, and appears to be the preferred way.
