Answer

It is mentioned in Durrul Mukhtar:

“The main part (rukn) of divorce is the specific statement.” (Raddul Muhtar p.426 v.4)

For divorce to occur it is necessary that the words of divorce are executed either clearly which will result in the divorce occurring straightaway or ambiguously which will result in the divorce occurring if there was intention or through “Dalalat Haal” (prevalent circumstances). 

With regards to your question as you did not say the words of divorce, the divorce will not occur.
