Pad out for accent tile

What is the preferred method to pad out mosaic accent tile to come flush with wall tile in a shower ? It seems an 1/8 off if you apply directly to shower wall.

I've used a piece of Ditra many times, it builds out about 1/8. They do make cement patch that you can use and of course we have used thinset. Thinset sets slow and isn't as easy to work with but it will work, especially for only 1/8.
