You have water or moisture somewhere in or on your ignition components. Let it dry out overnight or get in there with a rag and clean/soak up what you can and see if you can start it up.

Recheck your plug wire placement. Recheck cap and rotor install. Check all fuses. Leave hood open to sunlight for a day to dry out.
