own css in child theme?


i`ve a question about using own css in a child theme structure.
I created a second contact form (with the contact form 7 plugin). The text in the textfields now
appear white/grey on a white background.
Now i want to create new css for those textfields and don´t know where to place them.

The second question is, how to change the text from the wallstreet-contact site, which is defined in
.blog-form-control { color: #e5e5e5; background-color: transparent; border: 1px solid #7b7f8c; }

I tried to create a css folder with a new default.css in my child theme structure, but it didn´t work.

Can you give me a hint, please?

Thanks in advance
