Is there a way to use them so the lifting action is minimized? Also, it looks like there's a piece of plastic left embedded in the mortar; do those cause ghosting?
Like most jobs, do it properly or pay a skilled professional.

My house has an addition to it and part of the kitchen floor is slab part is beam with wood decking I put down a double layer of cement backer board to help stiffen and level out the floor prior to laying the tile. TO do this I first stripped the floor to the decking and concrete poured construction adhesive over the entire floor as I laid the 1x2 meter backer board then over the wood portion screwed it down on a 20 cm x 20 cm pattern.Then spread adhesive over that for the 2nd layer of backer board, then the tile adhesive and the tiles which were 1/4 meter sq. It didn't come out perfect but good enough for a 50 year old house. I would have preferred to use 200 mm sq or smaller tiles, but the guy doesn't always get to choose the color texture or size.
Now she thinks she wants tile chips for the bathroom walls OUCH! I have been balking on that for 2 years now.
Never try to tell me it can't be done
When I have to paint I use KBS products
Interesting. I did something similar for our hearth. Under the tile, I used two layers of cement backer board with expanded metal sheet between them, to act as a shock absorber.
