New faucet installation leak

I installed a new delta shower faucet, turned the water back on no leaks anywhere.I finished installing rock board and finished the seams.
2 days have gone buy and now where I have a 1/2"copper female screwed on to the 1/2" brass faucet fitting there is a very small leak. I would discrbe it as it takes 15-20 minutes or more to make a drop. it is accesable through the 6" oening in the rock board. However, there is a 90 degree soldered elbow coming right out of the copper female fitting. Otherwise,I would try to tighten it. I did use teflon tape on the copper 1/2" before I screwed the 1/2" copper on. Any suggestion how to stop the leak? Thanks!
